The Triadic Heart of Siva (Kaula Tantricism of Abhinavagupta In The Non-Dual Shaivism of Kashmir)
The Triadic Heart of Siva (Kaula Tantricism of Abhinavagupta In The Non-Dual Shaivism of Kashmir)
Description

Back of the Book

This books explores one of the most explicit and sophisticated theoretical formulations of Tantric yoga. It explains Abhinavagupta’s teaching about the nature of ultimate reality about the methods for experiencing this ultimate reality and about the nature of the state of realization a condition of embedded enlightenment. The author uncovers the conceptual matriz surrounding the practices of the kaula linerge of Kashmir Shaivism.

The primary textual basis for the book is provided by Abhinavagupta’s Parastrisika laghuvrtti a short meditation manual that centers on the symbolism of the heart mantra Sauh.

Muller Ortega’s approach is good clear intelligent and perceptive. The translation of the Parastrisika laghuvrtti given in the appendix being the first English translation of this short but important text is a very useful contribution to the study of Kashmir Shaivism and so are the long and numerous quotations in the text of other works as yet untranslated into English of Abhinavagupta’s Andre Padoux, center National de Ia Recherche Scientifique Paris.

Paul Eduardo Muller-Ortega is assistant professor of Religious studies at Michigan state University.

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...
