In Hinduism

Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)

Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram

Bhidā (भिदा) refers to “having burst apart (the limitless worlds of hell)”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “These five Siddhanāthas are the lords of the universe. (They are) the Siddhas of the agency of emanation. They are the doors to heaven and have reached the other side (of the ocean of bondage). They have burst apart the limitless worlds of hell (paṭala-bhidā) and are the only ones able to bestow liberation. They came down onto the venerable (mount) Kailāsa and, heating the lotus of phenomenal existence, shine with (their) radiant energy. I bow before these (Siddhas) constantly whose intellect is well versed in the Krama and are the descent (into the world) of all knowledge”.
