Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)
Yonyārṇava (योन्यार्णव) refers to the “(greatly sacred) ocean of the yoni”, 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 God (i.e., Bhairava) said to the Goddess (i.e., Khageśī), “O goddess, have compassion on me. I am Bhairava who has come before (you). O lord (prabhu), impart the Kula liturgy of the Command (ājñā) (to me)—burst apart the Liṅga! Reveal yourself according to your own true nature (svabhāvata) as the greatly sacred Ocean of the Yoni [i.e., yonyārṇava]. Accomplishment (siddhi) has come forth from there.”.
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.
