Pīṭhabali (पीठबलि) refers to the “offering of bali to the sacred seats”, 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, “Intent on (the practice of) the deposition (of mantra) (nyāsa), meditation, and the repetition (of mantra), he is successful by virtue of (his) association (yoga) with the Krama. By the practice of the offering of bali to the sacred seats [i.e., pīṭhabali-prayoga], (the goddess) Kuṇḍalinī (Taraṅginī) is full (and satisfied). One should worship (in this way) if one wishes the most excellent accomplishment. Already knowing the purification of the mantras, one should then begin to practice Yoga”.
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.
