Sakāma (सकाम) refers to “lustful eyes”, as mentioned in the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.6. Accordingly, as Sandhyā said to Śiva:—“[...] no creation of mine shall become lustful (sakāma) or fall anywhere degraded. He who becomes my husband shall be my intimate friend of pure mind. Any person who looks at me with lustful eyes (sakāma) shall lose his manliness and become a eunuch”.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.

Sakāma (सकाम) refers to “those who desire (enjoyments and supernatural powers)”, according to the Jñānaratnāvalī, (p. 266).—Accordingly, “In that case, the naiṣṭḥikī initiation is divided into one for those who desire (sakāma) [enjoyments and supernatural powers] and one for those who don’t”.
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.
