Visarja (विसर्ज) (=Visarga?) means to “abandon”, according to the second recension of the Yogakhaṇḍa of the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, as the Goddess (i.e., Khageśī) said to the God (i.e., Bhairava), “[...] (Tell me) how the practice of the Rule is; otherwise, I (cannot) cross over (this fettered state). I will abandon [i.e., visarja] the Liṅga and follow your Command, as it is established by the tradition on the western path. And I will worship the first teachers. I will give up all that is forbidden in the Kaula (teachings), especially what is excluded from the teaching and I will practice in tranquillity (nirvāṇa)”.
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.
