Karaṇatyāga (करणत्याग) refers to the “abandonment of the instruments”, according to the Svacchandabhairavatantra.—[...] We find that the Transmental [i.e., unmanā] appears, as usual, at the upper extremity of a progressive ascent of consciousness through the phases of the syllable OṂ. This takes place in consonance with the pervasion of the vital breath through the centres of the body, each of which is governed by the five deities who preside over a ‘karaṇa’ that is, ‘instrument’ representing an aspect of the universal cause of creation and destruction. The process is termed ‘the Abandonment of the Instruments’ (karaṇatyāga) because, as the breath-cum-consciousness rises from one to the other, the lower is abandoned for the higher.
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.
