Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Siddhayogeśvarī (सिद्धयोगेश्वरी) is an epithet for the Goddess according to the Bhairavīstotra in the Śrīmatottara-tantra, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “Victory! Victory (to you) O goddess (bhagavatī)! [...] (You are) the great power who attracts, deludes and paralyses; the mother of the Vedas; the ancient one; You are Jayā (Victory), Siddhayogeśvarī, Vajracaṇḍā, Bheruṇḍā, O you who have arisen out of the Udyāna Liṅga! [...]”.
Note: Siddhayogeśvarī is the main goddess (Parā) of the early Trika and, amongst Kubjikā’s six faces, she is the eastern one (cf. Kumārikākhaṇḍa 29.47).
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.

Siddhayogeśvarī (सिद्धयोगेश्वरी) or Siddhayogeśvarīmata refers to the “doctrine of the Yoginīs”, according to the Siddhayogeśvarīmata chapter 10.—Accordingly, “[The Goddess spoke]:—I have previously asked you about the Doctrine of the Yoginīs (Siddhayogeśvarīmata), O God, which helps to make mantras effective (mantra-prasādhaka) without any observances or worship. However, you have asserted, O God, that success depends on the ancillary mantras; therefore, tell me briefly about how to practise the observances associated with them. [...]”.
