Pancaratra (worship of Nārāyaṇa)
Sannidhi (सन्निधि) or Sannidhimudrā is the name of a mudrā described in the Īśvarasaṃhitā 67.—Accordingly, “the two hands are to be joined and turned upwards. The two thumbs shall be away from own little finger. This is sannidhimudrā”. Mūdra (eg., Sannidhi-mudrā) is so called as it gives joy to the tattvas in the form of karman for those who offer spotless worship, drive out the defects which move about within and without and sealing up of what is done.
Pancaratra (पाञ्चरात्र, pāñcarātra) represents a tradition of Hinduism where Narayana is revered and worshipped. Closeley related to Vaishnavism, the Pancaratra literature includes various Agamas and tantras incorporating many Vaishnava philosophies.
Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Saṃnidhi (संनिधि) refers to “approaching” [?], according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.20 (“The story of the submarine fire”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to Nārada: “[...] Taking that fire mare-like in form, at the will of Śiva, I, the lord of the worlds, went to the sea shore, for the benefit of the worlds. O sage, on seeing me arrived there, the sea took a human form and approached me [i.e., saṃnidhi] with palms joined in reverence. Bowing to and duly eulogising me, the grandfather of all the worlds, the ocean said lovingly”.
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.
India history and geography
Sannidhi.—cf. sannadi (SII 1), presence of a deity; the front of a temple. Note: sannidhi is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
