Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Ṛṇa (ऋण) refers to “debt”, according to the second recension of the Yogakhaṇḍa of the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, as the Goddess said: “In (this my) eighth birth having enjoyed pleasure (bhoga), with me, this is the debt [i.e., ṛṇa] that remains. We have mutually enjoyed the false object of enjoyment as it is (in the world and created) by Māyā. In this, the eighth age of Māyā, there is no return anymore”.
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.
