Madhyaga (मध्यग) refers to “that which is situated (on the cosmic path)”, according to the Jñānaratnāvalī, (p. 268).—Accordingly, “Now the lokadharmiṇī is divided into the superior and the inferior. Of these the superior bestows Śivahood. And it is said: ‘Having purified the pure and impure karma situated on the cosmic path (adhvan-madhyaga), whichever [initiation] brings about liberation is the supreme lokadharmiṇī [initiation]’”
