The Pratyabhijñā system is situated on the border between a more or less sect-neutral philosophy, described as such in the Sarvadarśanasaṃgraha, and one segment of sectarian Śaiva religion that is represented by the nondualist Kashmirian Śaiva cults, of which the Trika and the Krama are the most prominent. The Śrīvidvā originated on the fringe of the same canon of heterodox scriptures, but radically changed its religious affiliation through the course of centuries into a Veda-congruent type of Tantrism that is still practised as part of the non-sectarian Smārta tradition.
