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.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
