Source: Kashmir Saivism

Sauh Mantra is foremost among Mantras; It is like the seed of Nyagrodha tree (Ficus bengalensis); it grows and expands into a tree as Siva expands into 36 Tattvas. When the Tattvas involute into Siva, they subside in a retrograde fashion into Siva. From 6-36 Tattvas, they are all of external existence. These thirty-one Tattvas (6-36) exist in man. These elements again subside in Suddhavidya, Isvara and Sadasiva Tattvas (5, 4, 3), which again subside in Sakti and eventually in Siva Tattva.
