Natyashastra (नाट्यशास्त्र, nāṭyaśāstra) refers to both the ancient Indian tradition (śāstra) of performing arts, (nāṭya, e.g., theatrics, drama, dance, music), as well as the name of a Sanskrit work dealing with these subjects. It also teaches the rules for composing dramatic plays (nataka) and poetic works (kavya).
Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Sampuṭa (सम्पुट) refers to one of the eleven methods used with certain types of saptopāya (seven means) according to the 11th-century Netratantroddyota (v 18.10-12). According to the 10th-century Kakṣapuṭatantra verses 1.89-91, the method called saptopāya (seven means) should be performed when a mantra has had no effect. Among the saptopāya, the drāvaṇa, bodhana, poṣaya, śoṣaṇa, and dahanīya use a bīja, and attach it to the mantra. Kṣemarājaʼs commentary on the Netratantra (the Netratantroddyota) verses 18.10-12 gives a detailed account of 11 methods to tie a bīja to a mantra (for example, Sampuṭa).
The Saṃpuṭa is used in the bodhana and the poṣana. It is the method of placing a bīja before and after the mantra. In the bodhana, Sarasvatiʼs bīja “aiṃ” is inserted before and after the mantra; in the poṣana, Tripurasundarīʼs bīja “sauḣ” is inserted.Source: Shodhganga: Mantra-sādhana: Chapter One of the Kakṣapuṭatantra
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.
General definition (in Buddhism)
Saṃpuṭa (संपुट).—The term saṃpuṭa, in its general sense, means a hemispherically shaped dish or a hollow space between two dishes placed together. In the Tibetan versions of this Saṃpuṭa-tantra and in the commentaries, the term saṃpuṭa is translated either as “yang dag par sbyor ba” or as “kha sbyor”. Tentatively, these two Tibetan translations could be respectively rendered as “perfect union” and “mystic embrace”.
Fundamentally, there is a limited meaning that one can deduce from the Sanskrit term saṃpuṭa or from its Tibetan translations. However, the initial section of the tantra and the commentaries provide a whole range of complex interpretations all of which basically assert that it symbolises the non-dual union of wisdom (prajñā) and means (upāya), and other similar tantric pairs.Source: Institute of Buddhist Studies: Buddhist Forum, Volume 4 (buddhism)
