Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Paradhāma (परधाम) [=Paramadhāman?] refers to the “supreme abode”, according to the Devīpañcaśataka, an important source of the Kālīkrama that developed in Kashmir after the Kālī Mata of the Jayadrathayāmala.—Accordingly, “[...] It is Śiva’s will in the form of the Transmental and With Mind, (arisen as) both non-dual and dual (respectively). [...] Linked to Moon, Sun and Fire, she generates the seeds of (her) energies. Her form is one and, transcendent (nirālokā), is the supreme abode [i.e., paradhāma-svarūpiṇī]. She assumes a state of oneness in the middle of one who possesses (her) radiant energy. She shines, present in multiplicity (nānākhya) like the light of many suns. [...]”.

Paradhāman (परधामन्) refers to the “highest abode”, according to the Netratantroddyota commentary on 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 4.10]—“[...] He teaches that after the [Mantrin has] first, correctly understood this expansive [rite] from the Svacchanda Tantra, [and other texts], he should put it into practice. The eye of Śiva is greater than all. It bestows on those rich in devotion, immersion in the highest abode (paradhāman-samāveśa-prada), [and he] burns away of all the massive bonds”.
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.
