Triṃśat (त्रिंशत्) refers to the “thirty-six (Tattvas)” (of Śaivism), according to the the Dakṣiṇāmūrti (Dakṣiṇāmūrtistotrabhāvārthavārttika), otherwise known as the Mānasollāsa and attributed to a Sureśvarācārya.—Accordingly, while discussing the thirty-six Tattvas of Śaivism: “Those who know the scriptures of Sāṅkhya know twenty-four Tattvas. Those versed in the Purāṇas teach thirty Tattvas [which are] Mahat, Kāla, Pradhāna, Māyā, Vidyā and Pūruṣa along with the [twenty-four of Sāṅkhya]. Experts on the Śaivāgamas speak of thirty-six [i.e., triṃśat-tattva], [the six additional ones being,] Bindu, Nāda, Śakti, Śiva, Śānta and finally Atīta”.
