Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Sthāpita (स्थापित) refers to “(being) established”, 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, “The Great Mata is above all Tantric practice. It is the Śāmbhava tradition that has come down through the series of teachers. It has come from the invisible (unmanifest) form and gives success in the Age of Strife. O god, it gives worldly benefit and liberation and is sealed in the First Seat. It is the venerable Ciñciṇīkula present in the venerable Kadamba Cave, established (sthāpita) (there) by the God of the gods in accord with the Rule”.
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.
Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)Source: De Gruyter: A Buddhist Ritual Manual on Agriculture
Sthāpita (स्थापित) refers to “having placed (a ceremonial flagstaff)”, according to the Vajratuṇḍasamayakalparāja, an ancient Buddhist ritual manual on agriculture from the 5th-century (or earlier), containing various instructions for the Sangha to provide agriculture-related services to laypeople including rain-making, weather control and crop protection.—Accordingly, [As the Bhagavān said]: “Now I shall teach the offering manual which is auspicious and can bring about any effect. [...] This dhāraṇī should be written down and mounted at the top of a flagstaff in the four corners of the maṇḍala. These should be placed in the middle of the field. These should be placed in the middle of the garden. Immediately after these have been placed (sthāpita), the great mountain slope sealing of the boundary is completely established in the four directions. [...]”.
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings). Extant literature is vast and primarely composed in the Sanskrit language. There are many sūtras of which some of the earliest are the various Prajñāpāramitā sūtras.
General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Sthāpita (स्थापित) refers to “being established” (in solemn vows, etc.), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “The mind which is supported by restraint, tranquillity, non-attachment and consideration of reality [com.—established (sthāpita) in solemn vows, forbearance, freedom from worldly desires and consideration of reality’], [and] is lifted up by producing friendliness, etc. causes good influx of karma. The mind which is inflamed by the fire of passion [and] disordered by sense objects accumulates karma which shows a connection with life”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
