General definition (in Hinduism)
Aṅgavidyā (अङ्गविद्या).—The several subsidiary vidyās of Śrīvidyā are arranged into six amnayās. Amnayā means Veda/Agama, and in Śaiva there are five amnayās. They are represented by the five faces of Śiva facing Purva (eastwards), Dakṣiṇa (southwards), Pascima (westwards), Uttara (northwards) and Urdhva (upwards). In Śrī-vidyā there is a sixth amnaya called Anuttara. Each amnaya is associated with a guru-mandala and several Vidyās, astra-kamya and parā.
Besides, all the Vidyās are grouped at different levels.
