Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Nāsāgra (नासाग्र) refers to the “tip of the nāsā”.—The exact location of this nāsāgra is disputed and subject to contextual factors. There appear to be three main places intended in early Śaiva Tantras: (a) In exoteric usage it might sometimes be the end or tip of the nose. (b) The beginning of the bridge of the nose, i.e., the spot between the eyebrows where the gaze is to be fixed to aid concentration in various yogic disciplines. (c) In esoteric Tantric and Yogic contexts this denotes more commonly the śakti-dvādaśānta, the end of the central channel at the crown of the head, the cranial aperture. Similarly Kṣemarāja and Jayaratha gloss nāsānta as the end or inside of the nāsā which is the end or interior of the suṣumnā at the cranial aperture.Source: academia.edu: The Śaiva Yogas and Their Relation to Other Systems of Yoga
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.
