Existem seis escolas principais de entendimento da Filosofia dos Tattvas. O sistema original do Tattva foi desenvolvido pelo indiano Maharshi Kapila como parte de sua filosofia Samkhya . Isso foi a cerca de 700 e.a. (Era Antiga), mas a raiz da Filosofia dos Tattvas remonta a pelo menos 2000 e.a.. O sistema filosofico Samkhya de Kapila divide o universo em cinco formas Tattvicas básicas, que quando reagrupados tornando-se 25 Tattvas.

A palavra Tattva é composta por duas palavras, Tat (do inglês that, significa que) and Tvam (inglês thou, significa tu). Tattva basicamente significa thatness, isto é, algo como "o ser real das coisas". É geralmente traduzido como significado de "qualidade". Further, Tat represents the Godhead and Tvam the individual, giving a meaning (which fits in well with Hermetic Philosophy) of "That (which is the Universe) art thou." This is similar to the Hermetic axiom of "As above, so below", and is directly related to the concepts of the Macrocosm (Tat, Godhead) and Microcosm (Tvam, individual).

The Hatha Yoga School of Tattvic Philosophy links the energy found in breathing (Prana) with the cycle of the five Tattvas. The eighth chapter of the Shivagama is The Science of Breath and the Philosophy of the Tattvas. It is written within this work that "The Universe came out of the Tattvas; it goes on by the instrumentality of the Tattvas; it disappears into the Tattvas; by the Tattvas is known the nature of the Universe."

Os Tattvas são as cinco modificações do Grande Alento, Prana, cujo é descrito como sendo o princípio da vida no Universo (macrocosmo) e no homem (microcosmo). O Prana é consistuído de um oceano dos cinco Tattvas.

Os textos Budistas do Tantra indiano descrevem 7 centros de energia ,ou (chakras) em conecção com os cinco Tattvas. This finds its ultimate refinement in the Tibetan Buddhist fivefold chakra system, which is part of their fivefold division of esoteric symbolism for categorising the Universe. The Tattvas correspond to the five lower chakras in the Indian scheme of energy centres, and to all five psychic centres of the Tibetan chakra scheme.

H.P. Blavatsky’s Theosophical Society, based in Adyar, India, derived the bulk of their knowledge on Tattvas from Rama Prasad, who taught the Tattvic philosophy of the Hatha Yoga School. The Theosophists combined these teachings with those of the Esoteric Tibetan Buddhist tradition. On top of this they conjectured two more Tattvas, to make a total of seven, which allowed them to directly match the Tattvas to there sevenfold system, in particular to the seven Chakras.

The Tattvas they added were Adi, which is egg shaped, and Anupadaka, which is a crescent moon containing a radiant white sun.

The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn incorporated the Theosophical Tattva system, however discarding the sixth and seventh conjectured Tattvas, The Golden Dawn utilised Kapila’s Sankhya Tattva system of 25 countercharges. This was the only Eastern concept that the Golden Dawn introduced into their system. It was perhaps influenced by the mention of Tattvas in Bulwer-Lytton’s novel Zanoni, which was very likely the first mention of Tattvas in Western literature. In Zanoni the poisoning of the main character was neutralised by the magical visualisation of the Apas Tattva.

The Golden Dawn system parallels the five Tattvas to the Western Doctrine of the 5 elements, the four primary elements and quintessence.

Each Tattva cycle takes approximately two hours to transit over a given spot. Each complete Tattva flow itself occupies 24 minutes transit time. Each complete Tattva is divided into five sub Tattvum and these each take about 4 minutes and 48 seconds to transit a given spot.

The use of Tattva Vision is to aid with the development of the faculty of astral clairvoyance. It is considered one of the easiest, fastest and most effective methods of exercising and enhancing the clairvoyant factor.
