Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)
Saṃsiddhi (संसिद्धि) refers to “accomplishment”, according to the Jayadrathayāmala verse 4.8.107-108.—Accordingly, “O goddess, the inner procedure can only be accomplished by the outer liturgy (bāhyakrama). There would be no inner practice without the external one. The accomplishment of the invisible that bestows realisation is by means of the visible [saṃsiddhi—dṛṣṭenādṛṣṭasaṃsiddhiḥ pratītiṃ]”.
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.
Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana or tantric Buddhism)
Saṃsiddhi (संसिद्धि) refers to “fully accomplished”, according to the Cakrasaṃvara Samādhi [i.e., Cakrasamvara Meditation] ritual often performed in combination with the Cakrasaṃvara Samādhi, which refers to the primary pūjā and sādhanā practice of Newah Mahāyāna-Vajrayāna Buddhists in Nepal.—Accordingly, “A small Hūṃ in the heart, a small Hūṃ seal of light, sparkling together, Abiding in Akaniṣhṭha paradise, fully accomplished (anādi-saṃsiddhi), existing from eternity, Thrice sacred Cakrasaṃvara, attract her equally near to (one’s) navel”.
Tibetan Buddhism includes schools such as Nyingma, Kadampa, Kagyu and Gelug. Their primary canon of literature is divided in two broad categories: The Kangyur, which consists of Buddha’s words, and the Tengyur, which includes commentaries from various sources. Esotericism and tantra techniques (vajrayāna) are collected indepently.
