Mantroddhāra (मन्त्रोद्धार) refers to the “extraction of mantras”, according to the Kularatnoddyota (verse 2.4cd-10).—Accordingly, “[The Śrīkula is] accomplished by the Command and, supremely divine, it is adorned with the lineage of the Śrīkrama. [...] (Along with these things) I will tell you about the practice of the method of the Great Yoga correctly and as it truly is. (I will impart) the teaching concerning the extraction of mantras (mantroddhāra-vinirṇaya) and that concerning the Ages (yuga), the aeons of the descent (of the teaching) and the rest (along with that concerning) conduct and Yoga and the characteristic mark of (true) Yoginīs”.
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.
