Anupraveśa (अनुप्रवेश) refers to “constantly adhering (to the rules)” (of Yogic practice), according to the Tantrāloka 4.257cd-258ab.—Accordingly, while discussing the lower and higher teachings of Śaivism: “[The lower Tantras prescribe the wearing of] matted locks, [ashes], and the like, so that by constantly adhering to these rules (niyama-anupraveśa) one may realize one's identity [with Śiva]. [But] the Kaula system forbids these [practices]; for it teaches a method that abjures all austerities”.
