Yonirūpā (योनिरूपा) refers to “one who has the form of the female Yoni ”.—The common form for both male and female stones accounts for the ease with which they can change gender or be ‘neuter’, even if the texts on architecture distinguish stones on the basis of gender. So, by extension, a goddess can possess the stony form of a Liṅga. Rādhā, for example, in the Kṛṣṇayāmala is said to have this form (liṅgarūpā, liṅginī) as well as that of the female Yoni (yonirūpā).
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.
