He is the all-knowing, all-doing, all-sustaining being called Prakasha, the serene Lord, all-pervading indivisible and infinite. His nature is devanga purana of twofold - an innate aspect in which He pervades the universe and a transcendental aspect devanga purana which He is beyond all universal manifestations.

He is the origin and source of the universe. The vibration of the perfect subconscious is His Shakti, through devanga purana He holds and visualizes the entire universe.

The consciousness of self-luminosity is also called Chaitanya, and therefore Prakasha is the most distinctive aspect of Shiv.


The Veerashaivism is Agamic system. Agamas Principles or doctrines of religion are also Shivagamas that form the scriptures of Shaivism.


The Agamas of three kinds - Shivagamas, Shaktagamas, and Vaishnavagamas - based on the highest worship of deity Shiv or Shakti, or Vishnu. The Agamas also known as Tantras and practically no difference between Devanga purana and Shaktagamas as both believed to have been delivered by Shiv to his consort Devanga purana.

Devanga Puranam 1913

Devanga purana generally Shivagamas are called Agamas, and Shaktagamas are called Tantras. Devanga purana Shivagamas are 28 in number.

Only eight or nine are available: Besides these main Agamas, there are many secondary Agamas known as Upagamas, enumerated in various Shaiva works: Shivatattvaratnakara, an encyclopedic Sanskrit work of Keladi Basavaraj; the Vivekachintamani, a Kannada encyclopedic work of Nijaguna Shivayogi; and the introduction of Shivajnanasiddhiyar of Shaiva Siddhanta scholar Nallaswami Pillai.

There are three burning questions arise in regard to Agamas; a the age of the Agamas, b the origin and source of the Agamas, and c the contents of the Agamas. The age of the Agamas can be inferred from the references made to them in devanga purana works, which we are not going to discuss here.

But it can be said that Agamas are even older than Bhagavad-Gita devanga purana Puranas. Hence, one can conclude that the beginning of Agamas go back to the time of Aranyakas or Upanishads, which have been considered to devanga purana been written about years ago.


There are three theories regarding the origin and source of the Agamas. According to the first theory, Agamas arose out of Brahmanas and developed in the same way as the Upanishads. Thus Agamas appear to have been based devanga purana Vedas. The second theory expounds that the Devanga purana interpret the Upanishads and elaborate their teachings.

According to this view, the Upanishads present the "quest" by limiting to Charya, Kriya, and Yoga whereas the Agamas present the "attainment" by including the above three as well as Jnana. The third theory is revolutionary which devanga purana that Agamas are an independent literature and in no way connected with Vedas.

According to this view, it is suggested that the present Agamas are based on the Tamil originals altogether different from the Vedic literature, the literature associated with Aryans.

The Vedic literature consists of four Vedas, the Rig-Veda, parts of which devanga purana originally composed prior to BC, the Samaveda, Yajurveda, and Atharvaveda are devanga purana later dates. Rig-Veda consists of hymns dedicated to the Gods of Aryans and was composed by various families of priests.

They are not narrations of events but provide incidental evidence on the life of the Aryans. The first two theories are not different even though they seem to be superficially reasonable. However, the distinction between the Agamas and the Vedas is clear when difference between devanga purana teaching is noted: In contrast, the Agamic deities were personal deities Shiv, Shakti or Vishnu who control the forces of nature.

The fire was an intermediary between the worshipper and worshipped in Vedic religion where as the worshipper was himself was an intermediary between worshipper and the deity in Agamic religion, who was in direct communication with the deity. The Agamas also differ from devanga purana Upanishads fundamentally.

The Agamas are scriptures of Bhakti path and the Devanga purana are the scriptures of Jnana path.
