BHOGA KARIKA of Sadyojyoti With the Commentary of Aghora Siva
BHOGA KARIKA of Sadyojyoti With the Commentary of Aghora Siva
Description
From the Jacket:

The Bhoga Karika is a collection of Sanskrit verses by the renowned Saivite teacher and writer, Sadyojyoti, of the eighth century A.D. This translation of the Bhoga Karika also includes a short commentary by the similar renowned Aghora Siva, of the twelfth century. In a lively and engaging manner, the Bhoga Karika defends the Agamic Saivite theology, epistemology and ontology of "bhogra" or "mundane/ worldly experience" against the attacks of the rival schools, notably the Naiyayikas, Samkhyas, Carvakas and Buddhists. Employing a Saiva-yogic doctrine to explain the nature of bhoga (i.e., as self-identity based solely on ego-identity), Sadyojyoti plays on the twofold sense of bhoga as "mundane-experience" and "enjoyment." While bhoga is a limiting factor in human experience, it still continues a measure of enjoyment, which explains its attraction. On the other hand, bhoga is also an opportunity for the cultivation of a more profound form of enjoyment - the bliss or "ananda" found in the consciousness and being of a transcendence designated by the name of Siva.

I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
