Kavitva (कवित्व) refers to the “power of poetic expression”.—The highest attainment is that of the Command itself (ājñāsiddhi). This is also called the Accomplishment of Speech (vācāsiddhi). [...] In one place in the Śrīmatottara] it is barely the first accomplishment of a series of thirteen attained progressively as the adept repeats a mantra an increasing number of times. As one of the minor accomplishments, the texts explain the nature of the Accomplishment of Speech variously. In one place it is listed just before the power of poetic expression (kavitva), which suggests that in this case it [i.e., vācāsiddhi] is simply the ability to speak well. It can also be understood to be, as its name implies, the power to accomplish anything one says.
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.
