Tattvakrama (तत्त्वक्रम) refers to the “hierarchy of ontic levels”, according to the Brahmayāmala-tantra (or Picumata), an early 7th century Śaiva text consisting of twelve-thousand verses.—[The padmamālā-vidhi prescribes installing deities within series of nine, seven and eight lotuses].—The avadhūtatanu (“body of pure śakti”) is formed by lotuses of the three garlands and united by the śaktitantu [i.e., “cord of power”]. This embodies the entire pantheon of deities as well as the hierarchy of ontic levels (tattvakrama), from the earth element to paramaśiva.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
