Nānākhya (नानाख्य) refers to “multiplicity”, according to the Devīpañcaśataka, an important source of the Kālīkrama that developed in Kashmir after the Kālī Mata of the Jayadrathayāmala.—Accordingly, “[...] It is Śiva’s will in the form of the Transmental and With Mind, (arisen as) both non-dual and dual (respectively). [...] Linked to Moon, Sun and Fire, she generates the seeds of (her) energies. Her form is one and, transcendent (nirālokā), is the supreme abode. She assumes a state of oneness in the middle of one who possesses (her) radiant energy. She shines, present in multiplicity (nānākhya—nānākhyagā) like the light of many suns. [...]”.
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.
