Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)
Unmanī (उन्मनी) refers to the “transmental”.—According to the commentators, the Command [i.e., ājñā] is Śiva’s energy of consciousness (cit śakti). And this is essentially what it is according to the Kubjikā Tantras, but instead of calling it the energy of consciousness (an uncommon expression in these texts), they refer to it as the energy of the transmental (unmanī-śakti). This, essentially, is the empowering and purifying energy imparted by the deity directly or through the teacher. It liberates and bestows every form of accomplishment (siddhi) and worldly benefit (bhoga) to the one who receives it through initiation.
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.
