Manyamāna (मन्यमान) refers to “being thought of”, according to the the Niśvāsatattvasaṃhitā’s Nayasūtra 4.53-55.—Accordingly, “Thus one should meditate upon Śiva and the [individual] soul as one. Thus thinking of all things, and similarly [one’s own] self, as like Śiva, one becomes devoid of attachment and hatred. They [scil. those who think in this way] become spotless, pure, full of Śiva nature. He should understand [himself] as having one flavour [with Śiva], being [as he now is] joined with Śiva. The whole universe, moving and unmoving is thought of (manyamāna) as being like Śiva”.
