Vyakarana (व्याकरण, vyākaraṇa) refers to Sanskrit grammar and represents one of the six additional sciences (vedanga) to be studied along with the Vedas.

Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)Source: academia.edu: Religious Inclusivism in the Writings of an Early Modern Sanskrit Intellectual (Shaivism)
Prāmāṇya (प्रामाण्य) refers to the “authoritativeness” (of religious scriptures).—In his Tantrāloka, Abhinavagupta also defends the view that all religious scriptures are authoritative (sarvāgama-prāmāṇya) and that all merge together (melana) into a single āgama. Although unique (eka) in its essence, this āgama is variegated (citra) on a phenomenal level and as such manifests in the form of diverse religious scriptures―Buddhist, Pāñcarātrika, Śaiva, and others―each having its own group of eligible adherents (adhikārin). Each adherent follows the āgama that is in accordance with his specific needs, ends and spiritual maturity.
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.
