Shaivism in Ancient Kashmir : A Historical and Cultural Study

"Shaivism is rooted in hoary antiquity. It has both vedic and agamic roots. Kashmir was a centre of Shaiva worship and Pashupata cult. A philosophical renaissance was brought forth by concrete monism of Kashmir Shaivism or Praiyabhijna Shaivism. This in turn was the result of the churning of the Agamic traditions prevalent in Kashmir. Gradually many cults cropped up including the Karma Tantrism. The greatest of the Shaiva philosophers Abhinavgupta attempted to reconcile the metaphysical diversity by relating it to the diversity of spiritual experience.

Shaivism in Kashmir had deep impact on art, architecture, and society while pratyabhijna Shaivism developed a unique theory of aesthetics which is still held in the highest esteem by national and international scholars."                                                                                [from Blurb]
