Praroha (प्ररोह) refers to “sprouting (of those who die)”, according to the Vārāṇasīmāhātmya verse 1.116-125.—Accordingly, “[...] And there is no rebirth (udbhava) in this world for those Pāśupata sages who follow the observance of the skull, they who abide by the Atimārga. For the practitioners of the Atimārga there is only indifference. Those who have set out on the Atimārga only delight in indifference. Those who die on the saline ground go along that path, but of all saline grounds Vārāṇasī is the best, O sage. And there is no sprouting (praroha) for those who die there. The body abandoned on the cremation ground merges in the Lord of Time. [...]”.Source: SOAS University of London: Protective Rites in the Netra Tantra
Praroha (प्ररोह) refers to “taking root (in various bodies)”, 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 4.5cd-6, while describing the purification process of the initiand]—“Conceived means taking root in (antar-praroha) various bodies, janana is to be born out of that, adhikāra is the success of those who have grown to maturity and are suitable to experience bhoga. He’s qualified to achieve karma, i.e., he can acquire its ability to bring about enjoyment matured by the great power of the mantras. It takes the form of being ready to perform results. [...]”.
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.
