This book presents a short philosophical treatise in which twenty rival theories of the liberated state (moksa) are introduced and countered and a long discursive commentary that explores and develops the arguments that the treatise advances or implies. The original treatise comprises fifty-nine Sanskrit verses composed by Sadyojyotih (c. 675725 AD), the earliest named Saiva philosopher of the Mantramarga of whom works survive. The commentator, Bhatta Ramakantha (c. 9501000 AD), was a Kashmirian whose writings systematised the doctrines of the classical Saiva Siddhanta for some centuries the dominant school of tantric Saivism. Presented here is a first critical edition of these interlinked works and a richly annotated English translation. A lightly annotated introduction lays out clearly the ideas that the edited texts expound. Their study casts light not only on the history of Saiva thought, but also on a number of religio-philosophical doctrines for which little other testimony survives. Printed Pages: 508 with 13 figures.
