Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)

Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions

Ārambhin (आरम्भिन्) refers to “that which maintains (the current body)”, according to Kṣemarāja’s commentary on the Svacchandatantra verse 4.142b.—Accordingly, “For the purpose of supernatural powers, from the past pure and impure [karma] that maintains the [current] body [i.e., deha-ārambhin] he should only purify the impure [portion] for him, for in this way (evam) the achievement of enjoyment comes about without any obstacles. As for the pure and impure [karma] that is accumulated in other [past] births and which he will do in a [future] birth, all those should be purified for him according to the proclaimed procedure, like in the case of the Putraka, apart from [those karmas for] the propitiation of mantras. Therefore he said, [prākkarmāgāmi caikasthaṃ bhāvayitvā ca dīkṣayet (Svacchanda 4.142cd)]”.
