Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Viśrānti (विश्रान्ति, “reabsorption”) (Cf. Svarūpaviśrānti) refers to “assimilating (the perceptive experience)” and represents the final of the four moments in the act of perception, according to Dupuche (2003:59-60). Accordingly, “consciousness emits the object [i.e., udyoga—‘exertion’]. The second stage is avabhāsa, the manifestation of reality. The third is the absorption, the relishing or savouring (carvaṇa) of reality. The final stage is dissolution when reality is reabsorbed in its every aspect (viśrānti) of subjectivity. For example, ... at first there is will to perceive a jar (udyoga), then there is actual perception of the jar (avabhāsa), relishing of the perceptive experience (carvaṇa), and finally assimilating the perceptive experience of the jar to the essential nature of the Self”.
Note: In one place, the Mahānayaprakāśa (by unknown author) verse 3.1 lists these four as 1) udaya—‘arising’, 2) avabhāsa —‘manifestation’. 3) kālagrāsa—‘assimilation of time (into non-temporal consciousness)’. 4) svarūpaviśrānti—‘repose in one’s own nature’.
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.
Vaishnavism (Vaishava dharma)Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (vaishnavism)
Viśrānti (विश्रान्ति) refers to “resting”, according to the Vedānta Deśika’s Yatirājasaptati.—When we come to the poem’s understanding of the divinity of Rāmānuja we find a wide spectrum of meanings. [...] Verse 28 is particularly eloquent in describing and encapsulating all his nurturing and protecting qualities, which are compared to those present everywhere in nature itself—as the mountain from which originate all the streams of knowledge, the tree under which the weary traveler wandering in saṃsāra takes rest (viśrānti), the rising sun that keeps the illusionary darkness of those with distorted views at bay and the full moon that brings to high tide the ocean of the Vedas.
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
