In Hinduism

Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)

Source: Manblunder: Sri Rudram 2.3-6

Saspi (सस्पि) can also be interpreted as the one who destroys enemies (could be both external and internal). External enemies are the source of internal enemies. Enticing external world causes afflictions in the mind and as a result, our consciousness continues to remain distracted. Unless the consciousness is purified with the help of the mind, Liberation is not possible. Mind can be purified with the help of prāṇāyama. If we meditate on Rudra, He will shower His Grace and protect us from both external and internal enemies. If we meditate on Him, He leads us to Liberation through Vedic path (righteous path). Bhagavad Gītā explains this beautifully.
