Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Divyavapus (दिव्यवपुस्) refers to a “divine body”.—The moon also forms an important element of Pāśupata yogic practices. As we learn from the Skandapurāṇa (179.28ff.), as pointed out by Bakker (2015, 141), their “accomplishment in yoga” comes about through a process of withdrawing the senses until the practitioner can see a lunar disc in his heart. From the moonlight within his body, yogic powers, omniscience and the like arise. These powers include being immune to disease and possessing a divine body (divyavapus—divyaṃ vapuḥ).
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.
