Kakṣapuṭatantra (कक्षपुटतन्त्र) is a manual of Tantric practice exclusively dedicated to magical procedures and intended to generate worldly benefits. It was probably compiled around the tenth century CE. Although it is based on the Śaiva tradition, its authorship is traditionally ascribed to Nāgārjuna, one of the most famous Buddhist scholars. Other titles include Kakṣapuṭa, Kacchapuṭa, Kakṣyāpuṭa, Kakṣapuṭasarvasaṃgraha, and Siddhanāgārjuna.
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.
