In Hinduism

Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)

Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram

Ṣaḍara (षडर) refers to a “hexagon”.—The union of opposites on the analogy of sexual union and, indeed, its concrete realisation through it, is also represented by a sonic hexagon in Kashmiri Śaivism as it is in the Kubjikā sources. [...] According to Abhinavagupta the sonic equivalent of this hexagon (ṣaḍara) is the letter AI. In accord with the normal rules governing the conjunction (sandhi) of vowels in Sanskrit, the letter E is formed by the fusion of A, which represents Anuttara, the male Absolute, with I the cosmogenic Will (icchā) that issues from it through the force of its inner emission (visarga). Thus letter E is said to be ‘beautiful with the fragrance of emission’ and is represented by a downward-facing triangle that symbolizes the Yoni, AI is formed by the addition of A or Ā, which represents the Bliss (ānanda) of the Absolute, to the vowel E. The letter A is understood to be the upward-facing triangle filled with the energies of the Triangle as described above. Thus AI symbolizes the unfolding of the Bliss and the Will of the Absolute through the union of opposites represented by the two triangles of the hexagon.
