Pradīpta (प्रदीप्त) or Pradīptābhā refers to “illumination”, 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, “[...] She has eighteen eyes and great arms, above and below. She is illumined by great jewels [i.e., mahāratna-pradīpta-ābhā] and her beautiful light is like heated gold. The mantra on her head is divided into twenty-seven divisions and twenty-seven depositions (nyāsa). The goddess of the gods, she is the mistress of the hosts (of the god’s attendants). She is comfortably seated on a lion throne and shines beautifully, dark blue and red. [...]”.
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.
General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Pradīpta (प्रदीप्त) [=pradīpita?] refers to “inflamed” (by the fire of endless suffering), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “[This self] whose intention is confounded by the poison of manifestly false knowledge, desire and so forth falls into an existence that is difficult to endure, inflamed by the fire of endless suffering (ananta-duḥkhāgni-pradīpta)”.
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.
