The Ubiquitous Siva

Somananda's Sivadrsti and His Tantric Interlocutors

John Nemec

AAR Religion in Translation

  • Includes original translations of heretofore unrendered parts of Somananda's Sivadrsti
  • Argues that the work was written primarily for an audience of tantric initiates, as opposed to the wider audience targeted by Somananda's disciple, Utpaladeva
  • Includes, for the first time, a critical edition of both the Sivadrsti and the Sivadrstivatti, chapters 1-3, one based on six hand-copied manuscripts collected from across the Indian sub-continent
