Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)

Hutashana in Shaivism glossary... « previous · [H] · next »

Hutāśana (हुताशन) is the name of a deity who received the Dīptāgama from Trimūrti who in turn, received it from Īśa through the mahānsambandha relation, according to the pratisaṃhitā theory of Āgama origin and relationship (sambandha). The dīpta-āgama, being part of the ten Śivabhedāgamas, refers to one of the twenty-eight Siddhāntāgamas: 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.

Hutāśana obtained the Dīptāgama from Trimūrti who in turn obtained it from Īśa who in turn obtained it from Sadāśiva through parasambandha. Hutāśana then, through divya-sambandha transmitted it to the Devas who, through divyādivya-sambandha, transmitted it to the Ṛṣis who finally, through adivya-sambandha, revealed the Dīptāgama to human beings (Manuṣya). (also see Anantaśambhu’s commentary on the Siddhāntasārāvali of Trilocanaśivācārya)

In Buddhism

Tibetan Buddhism (Vajrayana or tantric Buddhism)

Hutāśana (हुताशन) is another name for Vaiśvānara: protector deity of the south-eastern cremation ground.—The southeast (āgneya) belongs to Agni (Śmaśānavidhi 14). Here, the synonym Vaiśvānara is given, the name of the fire in the cāturmāsya sacrifice; hence it is also listed as Hutavahadigīśa (Guhyasamayasādhanamālā 34) and Hutāśana (Saṃvarodayatantra 17).
