Saṃpravarta (संप्रवर्त) or Saṃpravartata refers to “that which takes place”, according to the Kularatnapañcakāvatāra verse 5.12-13.—Accordingly, “If the basic state of the teacher and the one who takes (initiation) accords with sattva, then the Śāmbhava (initiation by) piercing certainly takes place [i.e., saṃpravartata]. One should know that the one due to Śakti (takes place) when there is rajas and in the case of tamas it is considered to be the Āṇava one. O fair lady, when the basic state is a mixed one, the triple Command operates [i.e., saṃpravartata]”.
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.
