Dvandva (द्वन्द्व) or Dvandvāgama refers to one of upāgamas (supplementary scriptures) of the Santānāgama which is one of the twenty-eight Siddhāntāgama: a classification of the Śaiva division of Śaivāgamas. The Śaivāgamas represent the wisdom that has come down from lord Śiva, received by Pārvatī and accepted by Viṣṇu. The purpose of revealing upāgamas (e.g., Dvandva Āgama) is to explain more elaborately than that of mūlāgamas (e.g., Santāna-āgama) and to include any new idea if not dealt in mūlāgamas.Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions
Dvandva (द्वन्द्व) refers to “extremes”, according to the Jayadrathayāmala, Ṣaṭka 1 verse 13.3–18::—Accordingly, “[...] [And], O Goddess, [the Śivadharmadīkṣā] has two forms: in Śaiva scriptures the division of initiation is called that without the seed and that with the seed. [...] The sabījā is the opposite to this and is performed, O beautiful one, for those who are learned, endure extremes (dvandva-saha) and are able bodied. By those the rituals towards the Guru, the God and the fire have to be performed with extreme devotion, since the desired fruit will not come about for them who don’t do [these rites]. [...]”.
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.

Dvandva (द्वन्द्व) refers to a “pair” (e.g., the feet), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.8.—Accordingly, Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“On hearing your words the couple thought them true. Both Menā and Himavat were much distressed. O sage, on hearing your words, and inferring that indications referred to Śiva, Pārvatī’s joy knew no bounds. Convinced that Nārada’s words could not be false, Śivā turned her mind and love to Śiva’s feet [i.e., śivapada-dvandva]. The lord of mountains who was very much grieved in mind spoke to you, ‘O Nārada, O sage, what is the way out? What shall I do? A great misery has befallen us’. On hearing that, O sage, you who are eloquent in speech, delighted Himavat by your sweet words of auspicious import and spoke to console him”.
