Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Padmasaṃhitā (पद्मसंहिता) or Padmasaṃhitāgama refers to one of upāgamas (supplementary scriptures) of the Ajitāgama which is one of the twenty-eight Siddhāntāgama: a classification of the Śaiva division of Śaivāgamas. The Śaivāgamas represent the wisdom that has come down from lord Śiva, received by Pārvatī and accepted by Viṣṇu. The purpose of revealing upāgamas (eg., Padma-saṃhitā Āgama) is to explain more elaborately than that of mūlāgamas (eg., Ajita-āgama) and to include any new idea if not dealt in mūlāgamas.Source: Shodhganga: Iconographical representations of Śiva

Sāttvika (eg., Padmasaṃhitā-saṃhitā). b. Rājasa. c. Tāmasa.Source: Shodhganga: Iconographical representations of Śiva (pancaratra)
