Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)
Sāvadhi (सावधि) refers to one of two forms of liberation [?], 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, [while expounding Kaula and the Nine Kaulas]—“Free of (both forms of liberation, namely) ultimate (sāvadhi-niravadhi-mukta) and otherwise, devoid of emanation and withdrawal, I praise Kaula the Nameless (absolute) free of differentiation that accomplishes (all things)”.
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.
