1) Śāmbhavājñā (शाम्भवाज्ञा) refers to “Śiva’s Command”, according to the commentary on the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—In the Kumārikākhaṇḍa we are told that the goddess assumed the form of a divine Liṅga there and so was “established in authority” and that in this way she obtained Śiva’s Command (śāmbhavājñā). This is essentially what takes place, according to the Kubjikāmatatantra, when the goddess goes to the Island of the Moon [i.e., Candradvīpa].
2) Śāmbhavājñā (शाम्भव) or simply Śāmbhava refers to the Command (ājñā) associated with Oḍḍiyāna, one of the eight Sacred Seats (pīṭha), according to the Yogakhaṇḍa (chapter 14) of the Manthānabhairavatantra.
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.
