Antaryāmi (अन्तर्यामि) refers to a classification of Hindu images, as defined in the texts dealing with śilpa (arts and crafs), known as śilpaśāstras.—Images are classified into five forms, namely parama, vyūha, vibhāva, antaryāmi and arcā. Antaryāmi is the name given to the inner image held in intense worship within the beings of devotees. The ability to confirm and act from a self–contained energy is known as antaryāmitva. Antaryāmi is the essentially subtle state of existence of the Divine within our consciousness and within the beings of all substances.
