Kāraṇarūpa (कारणरूप) refers to “seven causal forms”.—These are bindu, bodhinī, nāda, mahānāda, kalā-añjī, samanī and unmanī. The first three are considered to be the three causal forms and aspects of Śakti: above the ājñā energy centre there is the bindu, identical with Śiva; above it is the Śakti bodhinī, having the shape of half a mora; this is followed by the nāda, which consists of the union of Śiva and Śakti and is like a half moon. (also see Kālīcaraṇa on Ṣaṭcakranirūpaṇa verse 39)
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
