Padabhakti (पदभक्ति) refers to the “enjoyment of the parts”, according to the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “Linked to the Siddhakrama (i.e. the vowels) and possessing the line of teachers, one should deposit this group of four by means of the vision of knowledge. This is the Kulākula body, supreme and common to all things. It is said to be the body of the parts (padadeha) of the planes of the enjoyment of the parts [i.e., padabhakti-pada]”.
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.
