It is believed that Lord Vāsudeva revealed the first group of texts which are called Divya and the next group is called Muniprokta which are further divided in to three viz. a. Sāttvika. b. Rājasa. c. Tāmasa (eg., Kāpilasaṃhitā-saṃhitā).Source: Shodhganga: Iconographical representations of Śiva (pancaratra)
