Introduction:

Paramanandatantra is an important tantrika work which is held as an authoritative treatise on Srividya worship, the most important branch of the Sakta tradition. Like most other tantrika works, it is in the form of a conversation between Siva (in his manifestation as Bhairava) and his consort, Devi. The Saubhagya tradition of Srividya worship considers this work as complete and independent, dealing with every aspect of Srividya worship culminating in Self-realization. Mahesvaranandanatha (which is the Diksa name of Cintamanisarma) wrote an excellent and extensive commentary (titled "Saubhagyanandasandoha") on this esoteric work of the Srividya tradition in the Kali year 4929 (177 years ago). Mahesvaranandanatha, being a full initiate of the Srividya school and a great scholar, has given the authentic interpretation of the entire work (consisting of 3322 verses), replete with mantra-s, esoteric elements of worship and yogic and meditative practices of great value not only to sadhaka-s of the Srividya tradition, but to the followers of other schools of worship as well. The acme of Srividya worship is Self-realization by transcending physical and mental limitations and achieving absorption in transcendental undivided Consciousness which is the Ultimate Reality. This is the ultimate goal of all spiritual sadhana.

Though the work consisting of 25 chapters if full of ritualistic details with all the mantra-s, yantra-s mudra-s and other auxiliary elements used in worship, the 24th Ullasa containing 219 verses and titled "Adhyatma-kathana", gives a concise but complete account of the Knowledge which liberates the sadhaka and the means to realize it so that the ultimate purpose of Srividya worship can be achieved by the sadhaka in his or her lifetime. Mahesvaranandanatha's detailed commentary is an invaluable guide to the understanding of this crowning chapter of the work.

An authentic edition of the original work and the commentary has been published by the Research Institute of Sampurnanand Sanskrit Vishvavidyalaya, which has been consulted by the translator in preparing this translation and notes. In this work, the verses are preceded by short statements introducing the subject (marked I) and followed by the translation (marked T) and notes (marked N) based on the commentary of Mahesvaranandanatha. The translator hopes that this presentation of this little known, but authoritative work will serve as a valuable guide to all spiritual seekers in their practice since it gives the quintessence of sadhana for Self-realization and Liberation.

The philosophy of the work, in common with most saktatantra-s, derives from the monistic school of Kashmir Saivism. But the translator has avoided the complex philosophical discussions based on this school included in the commentary since the work is mainly intended to guide the seekers in their spiritual practice.

Tina, USA
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.
