One of the main branches of Hinduism, it is the religious and philosophical tradition centered on the worship of the Supreme as Shakti (the dynamic, feminine aspect). In Shaktism, the Goddess or Divine Mother is understood as the active aspect of the transcendental Reality. Shaktas (adherents of Shaktism) worship Shakti in innumerable forms, employing mantras and yantras and performing pujas (ritual offerings) in order to call forth powerful cosmic energies and realize their universal nature. Dasha Maha Vidya Yoga (the yoga of the Ten Great Wisdoms) is a form of Shaktism.
