Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)
Mitratva (मित्रत्व) refers to “friendship”, according to the second recension of the Yogakhaṇḍa of the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, as the Goddess (i.e., Khageśī) said to the God (i.e., Bhairava), “If you are my friend [i.e., mitratva], recall what was previously agreed. And so tell (me) the liturgy (krama) and * *, having known (it), the Kula scripture. O goddess, tell me (about) the offerings, the sacrificial substances of the Siddhas and the Kula liturgy. To you belongs the glory (while) I am a worshipper of the transmission (krama). [...]”.
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.
