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.Source: McGill: The architectural theory of the Mānasāra
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)
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.Source: McGill: The architectural theory of the Mānasāra (shaivism)
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.
