imagination and intuition.

This little work is a digest of the Pratyabhijna
system of Kashmir Saiva philosophy, prepared by Ksemaraja, the illustriousdisciple of Abhinavagupta. It avoids all polemics and gives in a very succinct form
(20 surras) the main tenets of the Pratyabhijna
 presented by Utpala. Pratyabhijna means
recognition.
Jiva is Siva; by identifyinghimself with his body, Jiva has forgotten hisreal nature. This teaching is meant to enableJiva to recognise his own real self i.e., Sivaand to suggest to him the spiritual disciplineneeded to attain 'at-one-ment' with SlVA.Dr. Jaideva Singh has considerablyrevised and enlarged his translation, and provided a scholarly Introduction, Notes,Glossary of technical terms and Indexes. Itserves as the best introduction toPratyabhijna philosophy.
