Puñjacakra (पुञ्जचक्र) refers to the “wheel of rays” [?], according to the Devīpañcaśataka, an important source of the Kālīkrama that developed in Kashmir after the Kālī Mata of the Jayadrathayāmala.—Accordingly, “[...] It is Śiva’s will in the form of the Transmental and With Mind, (arisen as) both non-dual and dual (respectively). [...] And (that energy) With Mind generates the Five-fold Reality (pañcārtha) within this universe. The Transmental, who is Śiva’s capacity (to do all things) (sāmarthya), bestows the most excellent knowledge. She, the Supreme Goddess, again then spontaneously (svecchayā) devours the universe. The permutation (of the Transmental) is said to be the Light that precedes the mistress of the Wheel of Rays [i.e., puñjacakra-īśi-pūrvaga] (of divine consciousness). [...]”.
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.
