[Siddhantagama in Shaivism glossaries]

Siddhāntāgama (सिद्धान्तागम) refers to one of the three classifications of the Śaiva division of Śaivāgamas: one of the three classes of āgamas (traditionally communicated wisdom).—The śaivāgamas represent the wisdom that has come down from lord Śiva, received by Pārvatī and accepted by Viṣṇu. The śaivāgamas are divided into four groups viz. Śaiva, Pāśupata, Soma and Lākula. Śaiva is further divided in to Dakṣiṇa, Vāma and Siddhānta. Siddhānta again divided in to two groups viz. Śivabheda and Rudrabheda.

The Siddhāntaśaivāgamas maintain the view that the absolute (Paraśiva) started creation to protect the souls and at the time of creation itself he revealed the holy texts, Which are proved by verses found in Rauravāgama and also in Mṛgendrāgama.
