Sarvabhāvata (सर्वभावत) means “in every way”, 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 God (i.e., Bhairava) said to the Goddess (i.e., Khageśī), “[...] I will give up all that is forbidden in the Kaula (teachings), especially what is excluded from the teaching and I will practice in tranquillity (nirvāṇa). My greed, passion, and delusion have been destroyed today in every way [i.e., sarvabhāvata]. The triple world is pervaded by pride and ego. I will give up deceit and especially lust and anger. Tradition and virtue (vinaya)—this Kaula (teaching) has emerged today. I will observe all that. O Kaulinī, be gracious!”.
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.
