Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Vaṃśaja (वंशज) refers to “being born in a particular family”, according to verse 11.36-38 of the Kularatnoddyota, one of the earliest Kubjikā Tantras.—Accordingly, “When the (goddess) born in the family (vaṃśaja) of the Himalaya will assume a body, Skanda (Ṣaṇmukha) will be her son. Then Mitreśa who is accompanied by his consort, will tell his consort the teaching of knowledge in a solitary place (but) will not tell (it) to (his) son. O fair lady, out of anger, his son Skanda will throw that book into the sea and a fish will swallow it”.
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.
