About the Book

This Volume constitutes the proceedings of academic deliberations and presented papers of the National Seminar on Sacred Complex of Srisailam and Saivism in South India .The papers in this volume discuss various dimensions of Saivism in South India. They are arranged chronologically and geographically.

All the papers are well researched ones and add to our understanding of the Socio-Cultural aspects of Srisailam and Saivism in South India. I hope this Volume will be of more interest to both serious scholars of Indian Cultural and Religious History, Saivism, inter disciplinary studies and students alike and also a general reader.

Foreword

Andhra Desha had a certain land marks and on the religious front these land marks, which are found in historical records, have three large Saiva centres at Srisailam, Kaleswaram, and Draksharamam.The Andhra Desha was popularly known, therefore, as Trilinga Desha after these three Saiva sacred centers.

That saivism was predominant religion in Andhra is sufficiently indicated by several sacred centres of Siva, such as Umamaheswaram , Alampur, Siddavatam, Tripurantakam, Sangameswaram, Mahanandi, Pushpagiri, Kalahasti, Gudimallam, Kalahasthi, Lepakshi, Tadipatri, Palakollu, Samarlakota, Vemulavada, Bhimavaram, Mukhalingam etc, Of all these Srisailam is located in the Nallamalai hills Where presiding deities are Bramaramba Devi and Mallikarjuna Swamy. Mallikarjuna Swamy is believed as Swayambhu and second among the Dwadasa Jyotirlingas, While Bramaramba Devi is described as one of the AstadasaSaktis in India. Because of this, Srisailam is a popular and sacred complex in Telugu States. It is the fitness of things that the Potti Sreeramulu Telugu University established School of History, Culture and Archaeology at Srisailam in 1987 with the main objective of conducting research into Telugu speaking people History and Culture.

It was quite appropriate that Prof. P.Chenna Reddy, the then Dean and one of the founder members of the school, organizes a conference on Fresh Light on the History of Sacred Complex of Srisailam with kind cooperation of Srisailam Devasthanam and with the financial assistance of University grants Commission. This book is outcome of the deliberations at the Seminar.

I deem it a privilege to write a Foreword to Sacred Complex of Srisailam and Saivism in South India a collection of papers presented in the Seminar by many scholars in India. I am sure this Volume, planned by the enthusiastic scholars will contribute substantially to a better understanding of several hitherto unexplored aspects saivism of India's past. I convey my warm wishes and Congratulations to Prof. P. Chenna Reddy convener of the seminar for choosing this contextually relevant topic as theme of the seminar and wish this initiative a great success for bringing out this volume. I learnt that the seminar was a well organized one and academic deliberations were very fruitful. More than 33 papers were presented and discussed in the seminar. Iam happy, Yet surprised, to know that this volume is the fourth proceedings volume, of the total of 22 seminars conducted by School of History, Culture and Archaeology. I wish that the remaining ones will also see the light of the day soon. Given the variety of issues and aspects the papers in this volume deal with, I am sure this book will be of great interest and help to students and scholars of History, Culture, Religion and Archaeology.

Once again I congratulate Prof. P.Chenna Reddy, Editor of this Volume, Dean, School of History, Culture and Archaeology, P S Telugu University, Vice President, South Indian History Congress, Member, Executive Council, Dravidian University, Senate Member, Mahatma Gandhi University and Former Director of A P State Archaeology and Museums, Andhra Pradesh who took a lot of toil in bringing out the Volume on record time.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
