Vikraya (विक्रय) refers to “selling”, according to the Īśvarapratyabhijñāvivṛtivimarśinī 2.131.—Accordingly, “[They] ‘consist in each other’ [means the following]: even the essence of [ordinary human practice] such as buying and selling (kraya-vikraya), etc., is nothing but such a manifesting consciousness. Only that which is manifest in such a way is for this very reason useful [in providing] to me, for whom [this thing is manifest and while I am] being manifest [myself], an efficacy which is [itself] necessarily manifest!”.Source: SOAS University of London: Protective Rites in the Netra Tantra
Vikraya (विक्रय) refers to “selling (costly meat)”, according to the Svacchanda-tantra.—Accordingly, [verse 4.13-16, while describing auspicious dreams]—“[...] [A dreamer] sells costly meat (vikraya—mahāmāṃsasya vikrayam) and partitions the sacrificial victim for the gods out of respect. [The fortunate dreamer] worships the god with his own self and also recites mantras, meditates, and praises. Then he observes before his own eyes a beautiful honored blazing fire [i.e., he is prepared to take part in ritual]”.
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.
