Amūrtasādākhya (अमूर्तसादाख्य) refers to the first of the five Sādākhya in Śaiva school of thought (the Tattvabhedapaṭala of Vātulāgama and the Śaivotpattipaṭala of Rauravāgama).—The process of assuming the form by the transcendental god is termed as Sādākhya. Śānti is another name for Ādiśakti from whose 1/1000 part is the source of the formless (amūrta-sādākhya). This is so called Ādiśakti because it is without form, Amūrta is interpreted as that which has no Kalā. It is the Divyaliṅga, known as the Mūlastambha, the principal column. The whole universe comes out of the Liṅga and is again submerged in to it.
