Sarvaprāṇin (सर्वप्राणिन्) refers to “all animals”, 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 19.117-120, while describing the protection of the kingdom’s animals]—“[...] White mustard seed, empowered with the Mantra [placed] on the throat or head protects the elephants, [so that they] are liberated from all disease. In this way, he should conduct [rites of] protection for all goats and cows, etc. (sarvaprāṇin)”.
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.
