ABHINAVA TANTRALOKA PDF

Literally Tantra means thread and happens to have been used in one of the earliest usage in the Rgveda X. This Volume consists of three Chapters, namely, 1,2, and 3.

Life[ edit ] "Abhinavagupta" was not his real name, rather a title he earned from his master, carrying a meaning of "competence and authoritativeness".

Such union is essentially non-physical and universal, and thus Abhinavagupta conceived himself as always in communion with Shiva-Shakti.

In the context of his life and teachings, Abhinavagupta parallels Shiva as both ascetic and enjoyer. He studied assiduously at least until the age of 30 or 35,. A legend about the moment of his death placed somewhere between and , depending on the source , says that he took with him 1, disciples and marched off to a cave the Bhairava Cave, an actual place known to this day , reciting his poem Bhairava-stava, a devotional work.
