Dhyātvā (ध्यात्वा) refers to “having meditated”, 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 9.19cd-26, while instructing to visualize Sadāśiva in order to worship the formless Amṛteśa]—“[...] Thus, having meditated (dhyātvā), [the Mantrin] should worship Deveśa according to the rule [stated in the canon]. He should revere Īśāna, etc., and Sadyojāta, etc., in each’s own form, in open, unoccupied ground, on a liṅga, in water, above a lotus, and in each’s own direction.”.
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.

Dhyātvā (ध्यात्वा) refers to “having meditated (on that Āditya)”, according to the Saurasaṃhitā 9.34.—Accordingly, [while describing initiation (dīkṣā)]: “With enjoyment and liberation in the heart and having meditated (dhyātvā) on that [Āditya] as immortal and eternal and become absorbed in it, [the preceptor] is absorbed into the highest reality, which is the aspectless state. When the Sādhaka has become absorbed in it, he has qualities similar to that [Āditya]”.
Yoga is originally considered a branch of Hindu philosophy (astika), but both ancient and modern Yoga combine the physical, mental and spiritual. Yoga teaches various physical techniques also known as āsanas (postures), used for various purposes (eg., meditation, contemplation, relaxation).

Dhyātvā (ध्यात्वा) refers to “having thought (of one’s husband)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.54 (“Description of the duties of the chaste wife”).—Accordingly, as a Brahmin lady said to Pārvatī: “[...] During the three days of her monthly course she shall neither show her face nor speak to him. She shall not speak within his hearing till she becomes pure after her bath. After her bath she shall see her husband’s face and not that of anyone else. Or after thinking (dhyātvā) on her husband she shall then gaze at the sun. [...]”.
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.
