Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Sahitā (सहिता) refers to “she who is accompanied (by the Goddess Bhagavatī)”, 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 who is KLĪṂ, the goddess Klinnā, accompanied (sahitā) by the Goddess (bhagavatī) and endowed with the consciousness of the Command is Vakrā whose form is the Triangle. Supreme with (the sacred energy of the) nasal (letters in her Vidyā), she is Parā, the foremost knowledge. She has three eyes. (As) the Sun and Moon she shines as the Ray (of divine light), and is the goddess called Ciñciṇī. I praise her, she who residing in the Void, is the goddess whose eyes are the Sun and Moon and consists of thirty-two syllables”.
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.

Sahita (सहित).—adj. (1) (= Pali id.) of speech, connected, coherent, sensible: Mahāvyutpatti 474 (°tā, of Buddha's speech); sahitaṃ ca bhūtaṃ (true) ca sadā prabhāṣate Saddharmapuṇḍarīka 373.4; sahitaṃ…sumadhuraṃ…abravīt Mahāvastu i.145.7 = 201.7 = ii.5.2 (Senart i.490 wrongly kindly, agreeable); Mūla-Sarvāstivāda-Vinaya ii.174.2 (read) tavāsahitam, mama sahitam; (2) of hair and eyebrows, in sahita-bhrū Lalitavistara 107.8 and sahita-keśa 12, both in list of anuvyañjana of the Buddha (Senart also reads sahita-keśa in Mahāvastu ii.44.10, but read with mss. ahasita-keśa, q.v.); Tibetan Lalitavistara both times mñam pa = even, which usually renders Sanskrit sama and has both mgs., alike, and level, flat, smooth; probably therefore with smooth (orig. connected, so close-growing; perhaps thick?) eyebrows and hair. These terms seem to be substitutions for, and roughly equivalent to, ślakṣṇa-bhrū and -keśa of other texts (Nos. 65 and 76 of my list of anuvyañjana), both of which are lacking in Lalitavistara. In Pali, Therīg. 254, sahita is used of a young woman's hair compared to a grove: kānanaṃ va sahitaṃ (commentary 210.7 ghanasaṃnivesaṃ uddham eva uṭṭhita-uddhadīghasākhaṃ upavanaṃ viya; in accordance with this Mrs. Rhys Davids renders dense).Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Shabda-Sagara Sanskrit-English Dictionary
