Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Saṃvit (संवित्) or “awareness-reality” itself is succession or Krama. Whether it is a process of empirical cognition or that of reflective meditation or cosmic emanation, it is saṃvit that defines and undergoes the process of succession (krama). This process of succession is also termed Mahākrama.(Source): Google Books: The Krama Tantricism of Kashmir
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.
