Description

From the Jacket:

J. C. Chatteji's Kashmir Saivaism is an important and unique treatise on Saiva Philosophy that prevailed in Kashmir and still practised in different parts of India. The beginnings of 'Kashmir Saivaism' could be traced from Siva Sutras and its commentary by Ksemaraja. Its teachings and practices are given, in the literature of the system, the distinctive name of Trika-sasana, Trika-Sastra or simply Trika; and are often referred to as the Rahasya-Sampradaya, while Saivaism in general is spoken of as Siva-Sasana or Sivagama. The peculiarity of the Trika consists in the fact that, as a system of philosophy, it is a type of idealistic monism (advaita), and as such differs in of Saiva Philosophy, for instance, from what is described under the name of the Saiva Darsana in the Sarva-Darsana-Sangraha of Madhavacarya.
This book provides an insight of the form of Saivaism developed in Kashmir starting from its History. The entire book in divided into two parts-1) Kashmir Saivaism's History and Literature, 2) The Main Doctrines of the System. The book also works as a basis for comparative study of various forms of Saivaism.

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
