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.

Testimonials

Just wanted to say thanks for everything. I am really impressed with the statue, the packaging and the service. It's absolutely beautiful!
Anir, UK
Thank you for allowing me to shop in India from my desk in the United States!! I love your website! Om Shanthi

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
