In Hinduism

Vedanta (school of philosophy)

Source: Shodhganga: Siva Gita A Critical Study

Ṣadūrmi (षदूर्मि) refers to “six billows”:—

  1. hunger,
  2. thirst,
  3. grief,
  4. delusion,
  5. decay (by bodily disease),
  6. death.

Of these six ṣadūrmis, the first two belong to the prāṇa, the next two to the mind and the last two to the body. It is but natural that the Yogi should not be affected by these changes as his aim is the knowledge of the Ātman which is bereft of all qualities.
