The Īśvara, Pārameśvara and Pādma-Saṃhitā are respectively derived from the former three. In all these works, practical injunctions and rituals are interspersed with theological discussions. The Sāttvatasaṃhitā forms the basis for the worship in the Tirunārāyaṇa temple in Melkote (Cf. Īśvarasaṃhitā I.67).
