Sravat (स्रवत्) (Cf. Prasravat) means “oozing”, according to the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “[...] Once the Self, both manifest and unmanifest, has been aroused by that, this Śāmbhava (state) of subtle being is confined by it. [...] 3) Having aroused the Self with that, the Half Moon was made. Oozing [i.e., sravat] divine nectar, it is of benefit to the whole universe. [...] This fourfold energy (catuṣkala) of the quaternary beginning with the Transmental has arisen (thus). It is disturbed by (this) Krama Yoga and is the pure Śāmbhava body which has sixteen divisions (formed) by (each) group of four individually”.Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (shaktism)
Śravat (श्रवत्) [Cf. Śravantī] refers to “shedding light upon” [?], according to the King Vatsarāja’s Pūjāstuti called the Kāmasiddhistuti (also Vāmakeśvarīstuti), guiding one through the worship of the Goddess Nityā.—Accordingly, “[...] O goddess, I praise you with mind and speech. [...] Dwelling originally in the abode of Śiva, you multiply yourself sixfold and prepare the path of existence where you nurture wonderful and manifold creation with your own six forms. You shed moonlight (śravantī—sudhāṃśurasān śravantīm) on the path of Suṣumṇā that is charming due to the beautiful appearance of the six lotuses serving as [your] bases”.
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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
