Khaga (खग) refers to a “Skyfarer”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “The plane of the One-footed (ekapāda i.e. the letter E) is where the Skyfarer [i.e., khaga] is in the Skyfarer within the Cavity of the Hair [i.e., keśa-randhra-khaga]. Śrīdeva is above Meru (the triangle above the head) (merupaścima) in the essential nature of the Void (kha), which is the threefold measure (of energy) (mātra). (This is) where everything consists of Space (ākāśa) and is the Cavity (vivara), which is the nectar of Fire (vāḍava). There, above, in the Void is the supreme god. (He is) the moonbeam (candrāṃśu) that, well-fixed, oozes (nectar). The (energy of the) Full Moon (pūrṇamāsā) resides as the teacher's being (gurutva) on the plane of the Skyfarer”.
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.
