Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Varti (वर्ति) or Dhūmravarti refers to the “wick of smoke”, according to the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “[...] The Wick of Smoke (dhūmra-varti) that is said to rise up into the End of the Twelve is above the Great Cavity (mahārandhra) and travels (upwards for the span of) of twelve fingers. The supreme Transmission (krama), realised by Being (bhāvagamya), stands perpetually present at its extremity.

Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (philosophy)
Vartin (वर्तिन्) refers to “that which is located (inside the house)”, according to the Vṛtti on the Īśvarapratyabhijñāvivṛtivimarśinī 2.165.—Accordingly, “In ‘To this [objection we] reply …,’ [Utpaladeva] answers [the objection] with [the following] in mind. The externality of the pot is not thus one [and the same whether it is considered] with respect to the village or with respect to consciousness; for that which is external to consciousness consists in that which is not consciousness, whereas that which is external to the house does not consist in that which is not a house! For if that were the case, a particular element of the house—such as a wall—or a pot, for example, although it is located inside the house (gṛhāntar-vartin), should be external to the house [since they are not the house itself]; and it is not so.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
