Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Kurvāṇa (कुर्वाण) refers to “doing something”, according to the Kubjikāmata-tantra, the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “Whatever (the teacher) does (kurvāṇa), be it auspicious or inauspicious; the disciple should not deride him. (He is) destroyed by deriding (the teacher). When (he) derides (the teacher) he suffers violence. Nor should the disciple talk with the teacher as if he were his equal placing his hand on his mouth saying (with a demanding tone of voice): ‘Give (me your) command’.”.
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.
