Lectures and practice:
Worshiped as three goddesses in the Trika school, this Triad is one of the most essentially defining features of this form of Shaivism and its earlier prototypes in the Agamas. These three spheres correspond to three aspects of Sakti: Supreme (Para), Middling (Parapara) and Lower (Apara). The harmonious union (samarasya) of these three planes are Bhairava’s supreme glory, the radiance of the fullness of His power (purriasakti) which fills the entire universe. Together, this triad constitutes the Deity’s universal experience (bhogya). By sharing in it the yogi comes to realize the unsullied bliss of the absolute (anuttarananda), the supreme form of Spanda.
