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.

Amazing book and service. The shipment to Germany was even faster than I expected (4 days counting the weekend)the packaging was flawless and superb and I received the book in perfect condition. My pleasure to buy in your shop and thank you very much!

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
