Example text

No 4. M. Nallasâwmi published a new translation of the Sivajnänabodha. In this translation there are additional notes, more or less based on the commentary of Sivajnänayogi. Nallasâwmi P. also translated the Tiruarudpayan, Sivajnänasiddhiär and part of the Tirumantra. The last two works were published in the journal Siddhanta Dïpikâ, founded and supported by him, and which had taken upon itself the responsibility of researching into Saiva Siddhanta.

Then, in his mercy, he revealed the Pidika book by which souls are released. But who told him what was good and what was evil?

A natural force from which all the others derived, as from a mother. This one natural force, called Sakti, they then took for God. But as they did not find him there, any more than in the soul, they either took the Sakti as the immanent aspect of a hidden transcendent God (in myth, as the female aspect of divinity), or else just identified it with God. This tendency to seek God in the macrocosm found expression and champion in the Ägama literature, and it lived on in the philosophical schools based on them.
