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.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
