Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Sarvāmṛta (सर्वामृत) refers to “all amṛta”, according to the Netratantra of Kṣemarāja: a Śaiva text from the 9th century in which Śiva (Bhairava) teaches Pārvatī topics such as metaphysics, cosmology, and soteriology.—Accordingly, [verse 22.17ab]—“Sa is that which is self-perceived, true, possesses the attribute of gratification, the receptacle of all Amṛta (sarvāmṛta-padādhāra), together with visarga, and the highest auspicious thing (i.e., Śiva), which is full and uninterrupted, without any breaks”.
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.
