Ayurveda (science of life)
Siddhisthāna (सिद्धिस्थान) refers to the eighth of the eight sections of the Carakasaṃhitā which enjoys a prime position among Ayurvedic treatises and is written in the form of advices of the sage Ātreya to the sage Agniveśa. The Carakasaṃhitā contains eight sections [viz., siddhisthāna]. Sūtrasthāna contains 30 chapters.
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)
Siddhisthāna (सिद्धिस्थान) refers to “places of accomplishment”, 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, “One should worship them [i.e., the Goddesses of the seats] at each door (of the quarters). If they are worshipped they bestow accomplishments. If they are not worshipped they give rise to obstacles. They should be worshipped in the village, town, primary sacred seat, (sacred) field, crossroad, and places of accomplishment [i.e., siddhisthāna]. They certainly destroy obstacles. Worshipped and installed they give extensive accomplishment. One should worship the eight goddesses accompanied by the guardians of the field [...]”.
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.
