Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Guṇatā (गुणता) [=Guṇa?] refers to an “attribute”, according to the Īśvarapratyabhijñākārikā 3.2.11.—Accordingly, “And this Awareness-principle, consisting of [unlimited] Agency (kartṛtā-maya), [becomes] limited—[though] it is strengthened by partial agency—abiding as a [mere] attribute (guṇatā) in a person whose [habitual] nature is unconscious, [identifying as he does with] the void, [prāṇa, mind,] and [body].”.
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.
