Pūrayat (पूरयत्) means “to fill”, according to the Kularatnoddyota, one of the earliest Kubjikā Tantras.—Accordingly, “(Now) listen, O goddess, to how you should be contemplated in the Transmission of the Aged. [...] (You are) satisfied with the bliss of the Command and have made the Wheel of the Command (your) seat as (you) fill (everything) all around with the resounding sounds of Sound and Resonance. (You) fill [i.e., pūrayat] (the body) from the soles of the feet up to the end of the head with the powerful sounds (of mantras)”.
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.
