Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Pratibhāta (प्रतिभात) refers to a “manifestation”, according to the Utpaladeva’s Vivṛti on Īśvarapratyabhijñākārikā 1.5.8-9.—Accordingly, “Even a sense organ has already been experienced before [being inferred]; for this [sense organ] is not inferred in its own specific form, but rather, as a [mere] generality. This is what [I] say in the Vṛtti [with the words] ‘a cause that is a mere indeterminate thing’. The object [inferred in this inference of the sense organs] is a generality [that simply consists in] being a cause; [and this generality] was manifested before (pūrva-pratibhāta) [the inference] in the cognition that the seed is a cause of the sprout, [or] in the cognition that clay for instance is a cause of the pot and [other such objects]. [...]”.
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.
