Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Sarvavyāpin (सर्वव्यापिन्) refers to one who is “all-pervasive” and is used to describe Śiva, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.42.—Accordingly, as Viṣṇu eulogised Śiva:—“[...] O great God, O supreme God, the bestower of blessings on the world, O storehouse of mercy, the helper of the distressed, Thou art the great Brahman, the great soul. O Lord, Thou art all-pervasive (i.e., Sarvavyāpin) and independent. Thy glory can be known only through the Vedas. This Dakṣa is my devotee. He has been wicked to censure you before. He has committed an offence making us meritless. O great lord, Thou must forgive him since thou art free from aberrations”.
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.
Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Sarvavyāpin (सर्वव्यापिन्) refers to “all-pervasive”, according to the Ṣaṭsāhasrasaṃhitā, an expansion of the Kubjikāmatatantra: the earliest popular and most authoritative Tantra of the Kubjikā cult.—Accordingly, “(Kāmarūpa) is the Neuter (absolute) within the qualities. It has emerged as the pervasion (of consciousness) and, in front of the middle seat, is located on the peak in front. (Pleasing and delicate) like a lotus petal, it is radiant (with energy) and grey in colour. It shakes with mighty and fierce currents (of energy) engaged in striking against (it) and rocking (it) all around as it dries up (the entire) universe. The all-pervasive Lord of Kula [i.e., sarvavyāpin-kuleśvara] resides within (this), the maṇḍala of six spokes. There is nothing devoid of that within the sphere of emanation and withdrawal”.
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Sarvavyāpin (सर्वव्यापिन्) refers to “(that which is) pervading everything”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “I think, that doctrine, whose progress is unimpeded [com.—it is that which is pervading everything (sarvavyāpī)], has arisen for the benefit of the world of living souls in the guise of world-protectors. If, because of the power of the doctrine, it is not received by those whose minds are boundless, then there is not a cause for enjoyment and liberation in the three worlds”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
