Shivastotravali, . –9; Constantina Rhodes Bailly (trans. Shaiva Devotional Songs of Kashmir: A Translation and Study of Utpaladeva’s Shivastotravali (Albany, NY: SUNY, 1987) p. 30. As I read this passage from the Shivastotravali, I experienced it as an expression of utter longing and deep devotion. I sat in silence for some time, attuning to this expression of love, and I felt my heart open wide. It seems to me that we are being shown the way to become inseparable from the Lord-by seeing the Self in everyone we encounter.

One of the most beautiful books I've read, & read again & again, transcendent.

The Shivastotravali reflects Utpaladeva s philosophy, known as the Pratyabhijna school. And yet it is unique among the author s works in its not being a straightforward philosophical treatise but instead, as Dr. Bailly points out in her introduction, more of a spiritual diary of one who is actually treading the path of Shiva. For over a thousand years the Shaiva community of Kashmir has used in its worship the hymns of Utpaladeva s Shivastotravali. Here for the first time these hymns are presented in translation as English verse along with the Sanskrit, a clear and lively introduction, two appendices on special aspects of Kashmir Shaivism, and additional notes.

One of teh greatest spiritual documents ever written in teh realm of mysticism.

A study in devotion to nature. Small but sweet.

Funny how this drinking cult appears philosophically related to the other great monotheistic religions like Christianity Judaism and Islam. Sober students of nature should take note of the proper orientation toward divinity, slack jawed astonishment.
