Pādatattva (पादतत्त्व, “feet, locomotion”):—One of the Thirty-six Tattvas, according to Śaiva doctrine. This is the twenty-fourth or thirteenth tattva (when counting in reverse). These primary principles (tattva) represent the different manifestations of Brahman (universal consciousness) which together form the basis of our experiences. The Pāda-tattva forms part of the group of twenty-four Aśuddha-tattvas, which together constitue the realm of Aśuddha-māyā. It also forms part of the sub-group named Karmendriya (‘instruments of action’).
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.
