Kiñcid (किञ्चिद्) refers to “subtle”, according to the Svacchandabhairavatantra.—The Transmental (unmanā), just below this state, is the reflective awareness of one’s own nature that is directed in a subtle way (kiñcid-aunmukhya) to its self-realisation. It represents the highest and subtlest limit of immanence as the universal Being (mahāsattā), which contains and is both being and non-being. At the same time, the energy of the Transmental is the direct means to the supreme state of Non-being. Thus while contemplation of the other lower phases in the development of OṂ bestows yogic powers (siddhi) of an increasing order of perfection, it alone leads to liberation directly. Accordingly, the Tantra enjoins that the yogi should constantly contemplate supreme and subtle Non-being by means of this energy. This is because Non-being is beyond the senses and mind and is, according to Kṣemarāja, the pure knower who has no objectively distinguishable characteristics (alakṣya).
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.
