Agamas

Class of popular Hindu scriptures awhich are theological treatises and practical manuals of divine worship. The Agamas include the Tantras, Mantras and Yantras. These are treatises explaining the external worship of God, in idols, temples etc. All the Agamas treat of :

  • Jnana or Knowledge
  • Yoga or Concentration
  • Kriya or Esoteric Ritual
  • Charya or Exoteric Worship

The Agamas are divided into three areas:

  • The Vaishnava
  • The Saiva
  • The Sakta

The Vaishnava Agamas or Pancharatra Agamas glorify God as Vishnu.

The Saiva Agamas glorify God as Siva and this has given rise to an important school of philosophy known as Saiva-Siddhanta, which prevails in South India.

The Sakta Agamas or Tantras glorify God as the Mother of the Universe, under one of the many names of Devi.
