Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Vibhedin (विभेदिन्) (Cf. Vibhedinī) refers to “that which breaks through”, according to the Ambāmatasaṃhitā verse 5.94-95.—Accordingly, “She abides in the beginning in (the energies that) have been gathered together within a subtle measure (of energy), like a grain of wheat. That energy which moves in a slant and, tranquil, breaks through the condition of the mind [i.e., manobhāva-vibhedinī] as (she) matures impurities by means of knowledge, is Mālinī in the Kula”.
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.
Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (philosophy)
Vibhedin (विभेदिन्) refers to “that which is divided [=differentiated]”, according to Somānanda’s Śivadṛṣṭi verse 3.42cd–47.—Accordingly, “[...] How can there be something pure, something diminished, etc., when his nature is undivided? The fact of being gold simply exists in gold, (be it) in (the form of) a golden spittoon, etc., or in (the form of) a tiara, etc. The (fact of being) gold is in no way divided (vibhedin) [i.e., differentiated] whatsoever. If you argue that a fire installed in an outcaste’s house is not (properly) called a fire [i.e., it is not a proper, ritually-purified fire], we reply: that may be so [i.e., this does not contradict our notion of the uniformity of the nature of fire as such]. [...]”.
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.
