Devasva (देवस्व) refers to one of the six kinds of Nirmālya (everything offered to the Lord and everything that is his property) according to the Uttara-Kāmikāgama (prāyaścittavidhi-paṭala).—Nirmālya is classified into six. Devasva includes all property of the Lord including villages, etc.
Devasva refers to the “property of the Lord”.—The canopies tied on maṇḍapas, the decorative umbrellas, flowers, garlands, clothes, ornaments, vehicles, cows, land, gold, houses etc. and all other dravya offered to Śiva are called “devasva” or the property of the Lord.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
