Vicarantī (विचरन्ती) refers to “one who wanders”, according to the Jayadrathayāmala verse 1.12.456-459.—Accordingly, “By reflecting on ultimate reality, (the energy of the goddess) wanders [i.e., vicarantī] throughout the whole universe, including the gods, demons and men as the division of pervasion and the pervader. Through the Yoga (lit. ‘union’), by means of which (this energy) is checked (and so appropriated); and by the unfolding of its essential nature, the yogi becomes of that nature, endowed with the very essence of accomplishment. By attaining oneness in this way, Yoga—Āṇava, Śākta and Śāmbhava—has been explained, which illumines the meaning of the teacher’s (instruction)”.
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.
