The Śaiva commentarial tradition 2 Week 6

Location: OCHS Library
Speaker: Professor Gavin Flood
Date: January 25, 2010
Time: 10:00am to 11:00am

Continuing the Śaiva theme we will contrast the Saiddhāntika theology with the non-Saiddhāntika understanding of revelation through focussing firstly on Abhinavagupta’s commentary on the root text of his tradition, the Mālinīvijayottara-tantra. We will read the Mālinīślokavārttika I, 1.

Reading: Hanneder, Jurgen. Abhinavagupta’s Philosophy of Revelation (Forsten 1998).
