Pālikā (पालिका) refers to a “guardian (of the forest)”, according to the Śrīmatottara-tantra, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “[...] Then Pārvatī reached the Western Himagahvara. There was a guardian of the forest (vanapālikā) there called Ratnāvatyā. [...] The goddess who was the guardian of the forest bowed her head to the goddess surrounded by the host of female skyfarers. Her face charming, the goddess said to the guardian (pālikā) (of the forest)”.
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.
