Triṃśattattva (त्रिंशत्तत्त्व) 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., triṃśattattva], [the six additional ones being,] Bindu, Nāda, Śakti, Śiva, Śānta and finally Atīta”.
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.

Triṃśattattva (त्रिंशत्तत्त्व) refers to the “thirty reality-levels”, according to Aghoraśivācārya’s commentary on the Mṛgendratantra (Vidyāpāda 10.2).—Accordingly, [while describing dehasiddhyartha]: “The meaning is for the sake of attaining a subtle body whose nature is the thirty reality-levels (triṃśattattva) beginning with the products and instruments, and not for the sake of attaining a body derived from the worlds”.
Yoga is originally considered a branch of Hindu philosophy (astika), but both ancient and modern Yoga combine the physical, mental and spiritual. Yoga teaches various physical techniques also known as āsanas (postures), used for various purposes (eg., meditation, contemplation, relaxation).
