Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Nirgatā (निर्गता) refers to the “coming forth (of energy)”, 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, “(Kaula’s) will is the energy (śakti) that has come forth (nirgatā) (from it) and is Kaulinī whose form is the sprout (of creation). She is the goddess Parā, the (female) Neuter who is the Mother of (all) the systems. She is the (ultimate) end of the path of liberation. She is (also) the supreme aggregate (of energies), which is (the condition) without (any ultimate) end (and is binding)”.
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.
Yoga (school of philosophy)Source: ORA: Amanaska (king of all yogas): A Critical Edition and Annotated Translation by Jason Birch
Nirgata (निर्गत) refers to “being free from (any undertaking)”, according to the the Amanaska Yoga treatise dealing with meditation, absorption, yogic powers and liberation.—Accordingly, as Īśvara says to Vāmadeva: “[...] The knower of yoga whose inhalation and exhalation have disappeared, whose grasping of [sense] objects has ceased, and who is motionless and free from [any] undertaking (nirgata-ārambha), attains bliss. [This] extraordinary absorption by which all volition has been cut off and in which all movement has ceased, is intelligible [only] to oneself and is beyond the scope of words. [...]”.
Yoga is originally considered a branch of Hindu philosophy (astika), but both ancient and modern Yoga combine the physical, mental and spiritual. Yoga teaches various physical techniques also known as āsanas (postures), used for various purposes (eg., meditation, contemplation, relaxation).
General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Nirgata (निर्गत) refers to “coming forth” (from the pit of hell), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Where is the escape from the bottom of the pit of hell for the living soul who is continually afflicted by the enemy of infinite evil? If he emerges from that [com.—nirgata—‘he comes forth’], the sentient being is born among the immobile beings or by some action reaches the state of mobile beings”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
