Isvara Pratyabhijna Karika of Utpaladeva

B.N. Pandit (Author)
Synopsis The Isvara-praatyabhijna-karika of Utpaladeva is considered as one of the foremost works of the Pratyabhijna Darsana, the philosophy of Self Recognition, an important school of Kashmir Saivism. Written in the tenth century, it presents core arguments in support of a comprehensive monistic ontology as well as refutations of and disputations with Buddhist, Vedantic, and ritualist traditions that were current at the time. The Isvara-pratyabhijna-karika is a fundamental text of the non-dual Saivism of Kashmir and also f foundation for Saiva and Sakta Tantrism. Furthermore, it has appeal for the seeker; as he himself says, Utapaladeva composed the Isvara-pratyabhijna-karika so that all people could recognize and taste the ineffable joy of the Supreme Lord. This translation and commentary by Dr. B.N. Pandit offers English readers an accessible and lucid presentation of this important work.
