Padmayoni (पद्मयोनि) refers to the “lotus yoni”, according to the Ṭīkā (commentary) on the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, [while discussing the syllables of Navātman]: “The Moon Yoni—Sa, Śiva—Ha, the Fire of Time—Ra, the Vowel—Ū, the Last One—KṢa. Time (kāla)—Ma, the Support of the Lotus Yoni (padmayoni-dhara)—La, the Lord of the Wind—Ya and the Womb of Knowledge—Va. The form of (these) letters, extracted according to (their essential) condition and fused together into one syllabic mantra, is called Navātman. How else is it? It is covered with Sound. [...]”.
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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
