Pancaratra (worship of Nārāyaṇa)
Agastyasaṃhitā (अगस्त्यसंहिता) or simply Agastya is the name of a Vaiṣṇava Āgama scripture, classified as a sāttvika type of the Muniprokta group of Pāñcarātra Āgamas. The vaiṣṇavāgamas represent one of the three classes of āgamas (traditionally communicated wisdom).—Texts of the Pāñcara Āgamas are divided in to two sects. It is believed that Lord Vāsudeva revealed the first group of texts which are called Divya and the next group is called Muniprokta which are further divided in to three viz. a. Sāttvika (eg., Agastyasaṃhitā-saṃhitā). b. Rājasa. c. Tāmasa.Source: Shodhganga: Iconographical representations of Śiva (pancaratra)
