The present work deals exclusively with an area of profound mystic enquiry of perpetual interest. The secrets of the sacred East which had so far succeeded in drawing only limited interest along interested scholars appears to have, of late, exploded a popular interest. Naturally, a study of the actual bases of Saivism involves a close study of man's preoccupation with the subject of sex on the one hand, and of divine inspiration on the other. Religions of East and West of the ancients and moderns which have left us absorbing and interesting records of man's dive into the ocean of divine mystery and which have never been found missing in claiming the supreme intellectual and spiritual application of the human mind, have been placed under a scholarly scrutiny, which makes this work a remarkable contribution to the library of comparative religion. In fact to deal with Saivism is to deal with Hinduism in all its aspects; and to deal with the vexed subject of the worship of sex-organs is to enter into the very complex arena of primitive religions, and their traditional cultural forms. This popular misconception of equating Saivism with Phallicism compels us to make a thorough study of the subject on the basis of comparative religion. Printed Pages: 1120 with b/w illustrations.
