Sāmīpya (सामीप्य) refers to the second of four kinds of devotees (bhakta), according to the Mānasāra LIX, 1-2. According to the Mānasāra LIX, 3-4, “Jñāna and vairāgya yoked together is stated as sāmīpya”. Sāmīpya, is “being near the deity”.
In the state of sāmīpya, bhakti is significant by its absence: only jñāna and vairāgya are present. The attitude of bhakti thus eliminated, dispassion or detachment towards the world dominates this state. In other words, the “turning away from the world” is more complete.
Vastushastra (वास्तुशास्त्र, vāstuśāstra) refers to the ancient Indian science (shastra) of architecture (vastu), dealing with topics such architecture, sculpture, town-building, fort building and various other constructions. Vastu also deals with the philosophy of the architectural relation with the cosmic universe.
Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)Source: McGill: The architectural theory of the Mānasāra (shaivism)
Sāmīpya (सामीप्य) refers to the second state of a devotee (bhakta).—These four states are explained in not only abstract, philosophical, but also concrete, relational, terms in the Śaiva Siddhānta tradition. Thus, in sālokya, the relationship of devotee to deity is servile (servant-master), in sāmīpya, filial (son-father), in sārūpya, fraternal (as between friends), and in sāyūjya, amorous (as between loyers). The first three prepare the devotee for the fourth.
The four classes of devotees or the states of spiritual life somewhat correspond to the four divisions of the Āgamas and the four modes of sādhana, spiritual practice, they entail. Thus, sālokya corresponds to carya, ritual and moral conduct, sāmīpya to kriyā, architectural and iconographic making, sārūpya to yoga, meditation, and sāyūjya ta jñānapada, theology and gnosis.
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.
Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Sāmīpya (सामीप्य) refers to one of the five types of salvation, according to the Śivapurāṇa 1.9. Accordingly, “[...] worshipping me in my supreme phallic form at this place and performing the other sacred rites shall accord the five types of salvation—Sālokya, Sāmīpya, Sārūpya, Sārṣṭi and Sāyujya. May all of you achieve all your cherished desires”.
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.
Vaishnavism (Vaishava dharma)Source: Pure Bhakti: Bhajana-rahasya - 2nd Edition
Sāmīpya (सामीप्य) refers to:—The liberation of becoming a personal associate of Śrī Bhagavān. (cf. Glossary page from Bhajana-Rahasya).
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
