Sattāmātra (सत्तामात्र) refers to “pure being”, according to the Svacchandabhairavatantra, which is well known to the Kubjikā Tantras.—Accordingly, “That which is not void is called the Void, while the Void is said to be Non-being. Non-being is taught to be that wherein existing things have ceased to exist. (It is) pure Being (sattāmātra), supremely tranquil: that (transcendental) place abides in a certain indefinable manner”.
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.
