Vyāli (व्यालि) or Vyālinātha is one among the Navanāthas. Vyāli’s name has many variants viz., Byāli, Bhāli, Byāri, Bāli, Pāli, Vyādi etc. However, in the book ‘Masters of Mahāmudra’, he is listed last of the ‘Eighty-four Mahāsiddhas’. The work mentions that Vyāli was born in a wealthy Brahmin family, in the land of Apatra. He attempted to prepare a recipe of immortality, but the potion had no effect. Therefore in anger he threw his alchemical manual into the River Ganges, during his 13th year of sādhana.
Shilpashastra (शिल्पशास्त्र, śilpaśāstra) represents the ancient Indian science (shastra) of creative arts (shilpa) such as sculpture, iconography and painting. Closely related to Vastushastra (architecture), they often share the same literature.
