Bhūtasaṅgha (भूतसङ्घ) refers to the “spirit community”, according to the Netratantra of Kṣemarāja: a Śaiva text from the 9th century in which Śiva (Bhairava) teaches Pārvatī topics such as metaphysics, cosmology, and soteriology.—Accordingly, [verse 19.110-113, while describing the king’s consecration]—“[...] When [he has] perfected [the king] through the nīrājana rite, O beloved, the Mantrin, in order to protect and with an eager mind focused on the fire, anoints many [male] goats to satisfy the spirit community (bhūtasaṅghatṛptyarthaṃ bhūtasaṅghasya) [such as the Mātṛs, Yoginīs, and deities]. Once he knows the auspicious words and day, then he goes forth in three directions [north, northeast, and west], conferring siddhi to all”.
