Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)
Tatsthita (तत्स्थित) refers to “residing there”, according to the Netratantroddyota commentary on the Netratantra of Kṣemarāja: a Śaiva text from the 9th century in which Śiva (Bhairava) teaches Pārvatī topics such as metaphysics, cosmology, and soteriology.—Accordingly, [verse 4.5cd-6, while describing the purification process of the initiand]—“[...] [And after that,] [the bonds] have been reduced to ashes and reside there (tatsthite). [He continues to use the same astramantra [and] reduces to ashes the bonds, which completely cease and are without latent trace. [The locative of] tatsthita means he has visualized oneness of the consciousness of the disciple with the mūla [mantra]. The entirety [of the disciple's] body has ceased. [...]”.
