Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Suprabhedāgama (सुप्रभेदागम):—One of the 28 Śaivāgamas. This is one of the five Āgamas that were proclaimed to the world by the Vāmadeva face (of Śiva).Source: Wisdom Library: Śaivism
Suprabhedāgama (सुप्रभेदागम) or simply Suprabheda refers to one of the twenty-eight Siddhāntāgama: a classification of the Śaiva division of Śaivāgamas. 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 (eg., suprabheda-āgama).
According to the pratisaṃhitā theory of Āgama origin and relationship (sambandha), it was Sadāśiva who first imparted the Suprabhedāgama through parasambandha to Daśeśa, who then imparted it through mahānsambandha to Vighneśa, who then transmitted it to Śaśi who then, through divya-sambandha, transmitted it to the Devas who, through divyādivya-sambandha, transmitted it to the Ṛṣis who finally, through adivya-sambandha, revealed the Suprabhedāgama to human beings (Manuṣya). (also see Anantaśambhu’s commentary on the Siddhāntasārāvali of Trilocanaśivācārya)
There is no Upāgama for Suprabhedāgama. The purpose of revealing Upāgamas is to explain more elaborately than that of Mūlāgamas and to include any new idea if not dealt in Mūlāgamas.Source: Shodhganga: Iconographical representations of Śiva
