Makutagama Kriyapada and Caryapada (Sanskrit Text with English Translation and Notes)
Makutagama Kriyapada and Caryapada (Sanskrit Text with English Translation and Notes)
Description
From The Jacket

Agamas and Vedas, never apart, rather complementary to each other, are the revelation by the Supreme for the welfare on mankind. Both are the sources and ground of all the philosophical doctrines and the religious life of Hinduism. They emphatically assert the truth that is inherent in the philosophical teaching, the mystic experiences of spiritual life and intensively advocate the ritualistic aspect of religious life, elaborately deal with the spiritual sanctions and regulations of the worships.

The present scripture, consisting of Kriyapada and Caryapada, is the later portion of the Makutagama, one of the eighteen Rudragamas among the twenty-eight Siddhantagamas including the other ten Saivagamas. Makutagama is considered to be the crown of all Agamas as it elaborately describes the Sambhavavrata, also known as Sirovrata, the Supreme among all the vratas to attain the end of life. A detailed illustration of the procedure of the last rite to be performed on the demise of the observer of Sambhavavrata has also been stated in the Caryapada of the scripture.

Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
