Kubjīśānī (कुब्जीशानी) is another name for Kubjikā.—There are a surprising number of variant forms of the goddess’s name already in the Kubjikāmatatantra. The most basic one is Kubjikā which appears there twenty-one times. Others include Kubjinī (eight times in the Kubjikāmatatantra), Kubjī (17 times), Kubjīśānī, Kubjeśī, Kubjeśvarī. We also find several direct derivates of this name that have been given to aspects or parts of the goddess. Kamalakubjikā is Kubjikā’s Heart, the first of her six limbs. As Karṇakubjā, the ‘Bent One of the Ear’, she resides in that part of the body. Guhyakubjikā and Vajrakubjī are two of her aspects. One of her forms is Nagnakubjikā—the Naked Kubjikā. The male equivalents are not as varied. We find Kubjīśa, Kubjeśvara and, rarely, Kubjīśāna.
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.
