More Kashmir Saivism



In keeping with my recent interest in the Trika Philosophy of Kashmir Saivism, I thought I’d provide a link to a discussion of the 36 Tattvas, which:

…(D)escribe step-by-step how Supreme Consciousness makes itself appear to itself as limited consciousness stuck in a unconscious world and universe, and thus gets to experience the limited, conditional joys and sorrows of earthly existence, and then describes in a reverse step-by-step process, how that Supreme Consciousness then reveals its own true nature to itself, and thus experiences the outrageous joys of spiritual liberation.

Interesting stuff… and I maintain that reading about it beats getting saturated by the daily news.

    seekingfor: as you pointed out in your blog’s post for today, this philosophizing amounts to a pile of meaningless words if we don’t spend time on the cushion. I am, however, enjoying the process of reading this material from the perspective of a dedicated yogi. The words carry much, much more meaning than they did when I was discoving it many years ago.

    Hawk: There’s so much great stuff on the ‘Net, isn’t there?

    The material you are presenting here is great. My comments on my blog were more or less intended on a comment to myself. . .just trying to reinforce my own meditation practice.

    I wrote that post after a particulary deep and blissful meditation session. It was one of those, “aha. . .this is what it’s all about moments.”

    My blog is more of a personal journal of my practice. . .trying to rework things from the ground floor.

    However, I am really quite glad that you liked what I had to say, and I have been finding alot of inspiration in what you have been talking about at antisniveler.

    Likewise, I’m enjoying the personal expressions at your blog, seekingfor. Speaking from experience is where the rubber hits the road. You exude earnestness, and that’s something I appreciate highly.
