Chandas (prosody, study of Sanskrit metres)Source: Shodhganga: a concise history of Sanskrit Chanda literature
Markaṭījāla (मर्कटीजाल) is the name of a text dealing with Sanskrit prosody (chandas) for which no authorship could be traced. Usually the authors mention their names, parentage etc. in the colophon of their works. But there are certain works in which, the author leaves no impression of his identity. The Markaṭījāla is mentioned in the “New Catalogus Catalogorum” XX. p. 61.
Chandas (छन्दस्) refers to Sanskrit prosody and represents one of the six Vedangas (auxiliary disciplines belonging to the study of the Vedas). The science of prosody (chandas-shastra) focusses on the study of the poetic meters such as the commonly known twenty-six metres mentioned by Pingalas.
Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Markaṭijāla (मर्कटिजाल) refers to a “network of emeralds”, according to the Śrīmatottara-tantra, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “(Mālinī) is endless, supreme, subtle, omnipresent and both supreme (transcendent) and inferior (immanent). [...] In some places she shines like a network of emeralds [i.e., markaṭijāla-ābhā]; elsewhere she is like (a black) storm cloud. The goddess (mālinī) resides in the centre of the Void (of the Transcendent) at the end of the merger (of all things) and her form is all things. She who is the supreme goddess resides in the Void and her form is the Void”.
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.
