Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Mūrtimat (मूर्तिमत्) refers to “having form”, according to the Śrīmatottara-tantra, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “ Akula is (the reality) that should be understood and, O lady of good vows, Kaula comes from Kula. (Although) formless (amūrti), one should meditate on it as having form (mūrtimat) (because) its pure cognitive state cannot be perceived. Akula is the supreme principle. Śakti, which is five-fold, is Kula. While, (one could say) simply that its permutated (phenomenal) state is (the reality called) Kaula of those who maintain the tradition”.
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.
