Śaivism as Depicted in Vāyavăya Saṁhitā of Śivapurāṇa


Author(s): Dr. Banashree Sarkar

Abstract: Hinduism consists of six systems namely Śaivism, Vaiṣṇavism, Gāṇapatism, Kaumāram, Sauram and Śāktam. Śaivism is the name given to a group of religious and philosophical tradition which regards Lord Śiva as the Supreme Self or the Highest Reality. The Śaiva philosophy is preserved in the Āgamas and Purāṇas. The Śivapurāṇa is one of the main sources of Purāṇic Śaivism. Śaivism as a philosophical system has developed in different sub-sects. Five main sects of Śaivism are accepted by many scholars. The Vāyavăyasaṁhitā is one of the nine sections of the Śivapurāṇa. In the present paper an attempt has been made to throw light on the Śaivism depicted in the Vāyavăyasaṁhitā of the Śivapurāṇa.
