Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Sahadharmin (सहधर्मिन्) or Sahadharmiṇī refers to “the (power) that shares in Śiva’s attributes”, according to the Devīpañcaśataka, an important source of the Kālīkrama that developed in Kashmir after the Kālī Mata of the Jayadrathayāmala.—Accordingly, “The (power) that shares in Śiva’s attributes [i.e., sahadharmin] has arisen without (prior) reflection (acintitā) like the light of the rays in the sun and (the power) to burn within fire. It is Śiva’s will in the form of the Transmental and With Mind, (arisen as) both non-dual and dual (respectively). ‘I desire this and that spontaneously (anicchāta lit. ‘without desire’)’—that is this desire, the action within Śiva that has arisen as the supreme power who is the Transmental and With Mind”.
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.
