Vinirmukta (विनिर्मुक्त) (Cf. Varjita) means “without” (i.e., free from), according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “[...] Without utterance, incomparable, free of the impurity that is thought and the duality of desire [i.e., icchādvandva-vinirmukta], it is the undisturbed (stream up to the Transmental) with six parts (ṣaṭprakāra). This is said to be the differentiated form (sakala) of liberation. The undifferentiated (form—niṣkala) is said to (come) at the end of that. Once known the differentiated and the undifferentiated (forms of liberation), the yogi is freed from the mortal condition (martya). I will now expound the sixfold introduction to the differentiated (sakala aspect). [...]”.
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.
