Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)Source: SOAS University of London: Protective Rites in the Netra Tantra
Niyukta (नियुक्त) refers to the “employment” (of medicinal herbs in Tantric rituals), according to the Netratantra of Kṣemarāja: a Śaiva text from the 9th century in which Śiva (Bhairava) teaches Pārvatī topics such as metaphysics, cosmology, and soteriology.—Accordingly, [verse 15.4cd-7ab, while describing protection rituals]—“Since all Rakṣasas run away and are killed, then O Devi, I call [white mustard seeds] rakṣoghna. They spread on Earth and in all battles between demons and the chiefs of gods. [Mustard seeds] are employed (niyukta) as killers of villains in order to accomplish the destruction of enemies. Since their purpose is accomplished then they are called white mustard on Earth. They take away pride in evil-minded spirits”.
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.
