Siva Sutras: The Yoga of Supreme Identity by Jaideva Singh
Text of the Sutras and the Commentary Vimarsini of Ksemaraja

The Saiva philosophy of Kashmir is generally called Trika Sastra, because it is philosophy of the triad ñ (1) Siva (2) Sakti (3) Nara ñ the bound soul or (1) para ñ the highest (2) parapara ñ identity in difference and (3) apara ñ difference. The literature of the Trika system of Kashmir falls into three categories, viz., (1) the Agama Sastra, (2) the Spanda Sastra and (3) the Pratyabhijna Sastra. Agama Sastra is considered to be revelation by Siva. It lays down both the principles and practices of the system. The most important Agama of the Trika system was known as the Siva Sutras.

Siva Sutras are considered to be a revealed book of the Yoga: supreme identity of the individual self with the Divine. Here and English translation of the Siva Sutras has been provided, together with an abstract of each sutra, throws a flood of light on the entire system of Saiva Yoga. A glossary of technical terms and index are appended for the convenience of the reader.

Four commentaries on Siva Sutras are available at present, the Vimarsini commentary of Ksemaraja in prose, the Siva-sutra-vrtti by some anonymous author in prose, the Siva-sutra-varttikam by Varadaraja in verse.

The Siva-Sutra-vrtti is so close to Vimarsini that it appears to be either a preliminary draft or a later abstract of the Vimarsini. There is a strong presumption that the author of the Vrtti was Ksemaraja himself.

      DESCRIPTION:

      Believed to be the liquid manifestation of Shakti and the nurturer of the three worlds with her life-sustaining waters, Goddess Ganga is the epitome of beauty and purity, famous for her indomitable spirit and boundless charm. Renowned as a devoted daughter, a caring mother, a passionate lover and a merciful saviour, she is here to absorb and absolve us of our sins. A constant goddess, she is part of the Indian ethos, revered and loved across the ages.

      The exquisite epic that is Ganga’s story, from her miraculous origins, her sojourn in the heavens, her poignant relationships with the divine trinity, the birth of her sons Bhishma and Kartikeya and her descent into a wicked world that is not worthy of her, is dazzlingly told by Anuja Chandramouli. Without this Goddess, life as we know it will be over, for her righteous retribution will be terrifying.
      This book is a vibrant retelling of the story of Ganga, who has the power to save us all and bestow the precious gift of moksha, embracing saints and sinners alike with her all-encompassing compassion.

      DESCRIPTION:

      "Ideally, Kama should have been happy. But what he felt was apprehension and there was no shaking the feeling that he had been tempered with fire to prepare him solely for what lay ahead." Kamadeva, the charming wielder of the sugarcane bow and the flowertipped arrows, born out of the wellspring of Brahma's latent passion, has for long remained an enigma. This enthralling story of the God of Desire explores his many wondrous adventures, as well as his heady romance with Rati, his chief consort. Best friends with Indra, the King of the Gods, tutor to the Apsaras in the art of lovemaking, Kamadeva lives a dream life in the magnificent Kingdom of Amaravathiuntil danger strikes when he incurs the wrath of Shiva because of a preordained curse. Follow Kama as he hurtles towards his destiny and the Destroyer's dreaded third eye. Find out if he will rise from the ashes to reign supreme as the King of Hearts or if he will be doomed to spend an eternity as Ananga the bodiless one. In Kamadeva: The God of Desire, the author masterfully marries imagination with stellar research to bring to vivid life one of the most intriguing Gods of the Hindu pantheon. Laced with wit and narrated in contemporary flavour, Kamadeva will take you on a rollicking ride into the heart of desire and its tantalizing dark side.

Each night, miraculously, the Lord Himself would modify Kacciappa's manuscript with His own corrections. Hence, the work is considered to be the absolutely authoritative account of Lord Murugan's legends bearing the seal of approval of none other than the Lord Himself.

      Everyone associated with Sri Krishna believes that their relationship with the deity is unique, which explains why every gopika felt that the Lord was dancing with her at the Maharaas. That is Sri Krishna’s magic and also his power that he becomes the centre of their existence. He has that effect on not just humans but on everything on the planet—both living and non-living.
      This book is about Sri Krishna’s relationship with nature; the Peacock, the Kadamba tree, the Flute, the herbal plant Tulsi, the Lotus, his cow Kamadhenu, the Conch and the Peepala tree.
      All of them believe that Keshava loves them the most. Can this be true?
      Keshava, A Magnificent Obsession is the story of these special bindings, stories of passion, submission, devotion and of uncontainable desire.

        Description:

        Vishnu: An Introduction attempts to highlight the many aspects of the preserver of the cosmos. As the sustainer of the elements, the lord of ten principal avatars, and the god of a thousand names – Rama, Krishna, Varaha, Narasimha, Narayana – Vishnu is an enigma and an intellectual challenge. The book untangles the bulk of this Godhead’s philosophy. Through a narrative that is eminently simple, and images that compliment a lucidly-written text, the book guides the reader through Vaishnava belief, history, folklore and myth.

          Description:

          The book is an attempt at demystifying one of the chief deities in the Hindu triumvirate, Shiva, the transformer. As Gangadhara, the carrier of the Ganges; as Pashupati, the lord of cattle; as Bhairav, the spirit of austere penance, the book delves into the many identities of a paradoxical Godhead. With a plethora of stories, unfamiliar and untold, a key to the deity’s chief symbols, a map to jyotirlingas, and a list of the ravel-haired god’s many names, Shiva: An Introduction takes the reader on a journey through Shaivite philosophy, history, folklore, ritual and myth.
