Siddhasevita (सिद्धसेवित) refers to “that which is attended upon by Siddhas”, 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, “(Kubjikā’s) iconic form is threefold (according to whether it is) in (the transmission) of the Child, Middle One or the Aged. [...] The face of the goddess Parā is on top of the heads and shines auspiciously. It is white as milk, beautiful and shines like millions of moons. It exudes a current of nectar and is endowed with the eighteenth energy (of the Moon). The second one is the upper face. It is the Void called Mālinī. It is white and is venerated, part by part, by (both) the gods and demons. The third one is the eastern face. White, it is distraught with anger. Attended by Siddhas and Yoginīs [i.e., siddhasevita—siddhayoginisevitam], it is called Siddhayogeśvarī. [...]”.
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.
