Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Kāmikāgama (कामिकागम):—One of the 28 Śaivāgamas. This is one of the five Āgamas that were proclaimed to the world by the Sadyojāta face (of Śiva).Source: Wisdom Library: Śaivism
Kāmikāgama (कामिकागम).—The Kāmikāgama, belonging to the Siddhānta School of South Indian Śaivism, is a metrical work in two parts, Pūrvabhāga and Uttarabhāga. The Pūrvabhāga itself consists of seventy five Paṭala (chapters). Apart from ritual matters, the Kāmikāgama also concerned with temple-architecture, consecration, priests, devotees and a little of philosophical ideas.Source: DSpace at Pondicherry: Siddha Cult in Tamilnadu (shaivism)
Kāmikāgama (कामिकागम) or simply Kāmika refers to 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 Śaivāgamas are divided into four groups viz. Śaiva, Pāśupata, Soma and Lākula. Śaiva is further divided in to Dakṣiṇa, Vāma and Siddhānta (eg., kāmika-āgama).
According to the pratisaṃhitā theory of Āgama origin and relationship (sambandha), it was Sadāśiva who first imparted the Kāmikāgama through parasambandha to Praṇava, who then imparted it through mahānsambandha to Trikala, who then transmitted it to Hara who 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 Kāmikāgama to human beings (Manuṣya). (also see Anantaśambhu’s commentary on the Siddhāntasārāvali of Trilocanaśivācārya)
The Upāgamas for Kāmikāgama are: Vaktra, Bhairavottara and Nārasiṃha (Mṛgendra). The purpose of revealing Upāgamas is to explain more elaborately than that of Mūlāgamas and to include any new idea if not dealt in Mūlāgamas.Source: Shodhganga: Iconographical representations of Śiva
Kāmikāgama (कामिकागम) refers one of the twenty eight Śaivāgamas.—The Kāmikāgama is one of the primary Śaivāgama texts and most temples in Tamil Nadu follow either the Kāmikāgama or the Kāraṇāgama.Source: Shodhganga: Temple management in the Āgamas
