Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Meya (मेय) refers to “object” (i.e., ‘that which is to be known’—Śiva) according to Abhinavagupta’s Mālinīvijayavārtika:—[...] Abhinavagupta proceeds to an exposition of the sixteen phases of the cycle of cognitive consciousness in relation to the sphere of the object (meya), symbolized by the Moon. This begins with a list of these phases. Note that the ‘object’, which in Sanskrit is called meya, which literally means ‘that which is to be known’, is ultimately Śiva, the pure conscious nature. Abhinava teaches that it is ‘I’ consciousness and is 'that which is to be known'. Accordingly, the sixteen phases leading to the perception of any object, if correctly and fully experienced, culminate in the liberated condition of the sixteenth phase, which is equated with the sixteenth energy of the Moon, as it is in the Kubjikā Tantras and those of other schools, although from a quite different perspective.
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.

The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
