Aṭana (अटन):—[aṭanaṃ] Wandering
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics. Traditional practice of Āyurveda in ancient India dates back to at least the first millenium BC. Literature is commonly written in Sanskrit using various poetic metres.
Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Aṭana (अटन) (Cf. Bhramaṇa) refers to “wandering” (i.e., peregrination to the sacred places), according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—That the injunction to visit these places [i.e., ‘sacred seats’] should be taken literally is further reinforced by the warning that follows that the adept who goes to or resides in these places should not be proud. Peregrination to the sacred places is variously termed. It may be simply called a ‘wandering’ (aṭana, bhramaṇa). This may be associated with the pious wandering of the ascetic in search of alms (bhikṣāṭana) and, especially, begging for alms in the eight sacred Kaula places listed below. Accordingly, these places are called ‘sacred seats of peregrination' (aṭanapīṭha).
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Aṭana (अटन) refers to a “wanderer”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.11.—Accordingly, as Himavat (Himālaya) eulogised Śiva: “[...] O Śiva, obeisance to the resident of Kailāsa, obeisance to one who wanders all over the worlds [i.e., sarvaloka-aṭana], obeisance to thee the great lord, to the one indulging in divine sports, obeisance to the trident-holder. O lord, of complete and perfect qualities, obeisance to Thee, devoid of aberrations. Obeisance to Thee without aspirations. Obeisance to Thee without desires. Obeisance to the bold one, to the great soul. [...]”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
