The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world.

Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
