Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Vinoda (विनोद) refers to “fun”, 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, “The Kaulika assembly, made up of (initiates) born into the Kula [i.e., kulaja-ātmaka], is worshipped in this way. It is done with the power (of a state of consciousness) free of thought constructs and so one should not reflect (on whether one is making pure or impure offerings). Brahmā and the other Ṛṣis are there intent on spiritual practice. Some of them dance and sing, some of them desire sex, some play, some are delighted with the fun [i.e., vinoda-harṣita], some who are experts in the Kulāgama recite (it) sweetly”.
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.

Vinoda (विनोद) refers to “(singing) jubilantly”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.47 (“The ceremonious entry of Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Monetary gifts were distributed among others. They were diverse. Many songs were sung jubilantly (vādya-vinoda). Then Viṣṇu, I the creator, Indra and other gods as well as the sages joined in jubilation with great pleasure. Then after bowing humbly to Pārvatī with devotion and remembering the lotus-like feet of Śiva they returned to their camps obtaining the permission of Himavat. [...]”.

Among these, eighteen things are mentioned which are known as vyasana (addictions or vices), and without these the senses are useless, and these eighteen are the real causes of exquisite delight. [...]”.
