Product Overview

The ParamarthasA]ra, or the Essence of [the Teachings on] Supreme Reality by Abhinavagupta (Xth to XIth AD) is a compendium of the monistic doctrine of Trika Saivism. This book offers the first commented English translation of both the text and its commentary by Yogaraja (XIIth AD), along with a corrected Sanskrit text, introduction, indices and appendices. In an attempt to follow the principles of Yogarajas commentary, the authors unfold the metaphysical as well as mystic meanings of the text. In this process, they have taken recourse to both traditional Indian exegesis and the current interpretations among scholars of Kasmir Saivism. This edition will be of interest to Indologists and specialists of Kasmir Saivism, as well as to specialists and students of religious studies, philosophy and anthropology.
