Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)
Mokṣamārga (मोक्षमार्ग) refers to the “path to liberation”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “Mantras are in three modalities (gati)—Āṇava, Śākta, and Śāmbhava. The Vidyā should be repeated by means of the empowered utterance. (Repeated in this way) this mantra is merged in the dynamism of Śiva (śivacāra). One should repeat the mantra, which is on the path to liberation [i.e., mokṣamārga-padāśrita], within Rudra. Śakti is the seed of mantras while the body (piṇḍa) (of the mantra) is the field. One should know that the part (pada) (of the mantra arises) if it is fixed (in the field which is its highest state). This is a mantra’s threefold modality (gati). The Self, mind (manas) and body (piṇḍa) is the triple energy and the ‘coming and going’ (which is the dynamism of the mantra’s recitation). One should think that (in this way) the utterance of that mantra has become one”.
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.
