11/16/2022 - MASSIVE UPDATE: Read here!

pic 57

  1. Massive update: I published 252 new pages (42 pages x 6 languages). Firstly, I mounted 54 pages (9 pages x 6 languages) containing the whole Pāṇini's Aṣṭādhyāyī (3983 aphorisms). Secondly, I mounted 198 pages (33 pages x 6 languages) containing the same scripture but with a rather complete explanation. Of course, I will be translating and explaining Aṣṭādhyāyī little by little over the months or years (especially because of the explanations, which will be huge sometimes), but now the whole framework to do so is completely ready.
  2. Pāṇini's Aṣṭādhyāyī: I started in English with the Chapter 1. I will be updating it regularly.
  3. I also continue with my work on Tantrasāra's Chapter 9 in English. I am updating it regularly too.
  4. My wife and collaborator finished translating into Russian the following chapters in Tantrasāra: Chapter 6, chapter 7 and chapter 8. Fantastic!
  5. I continue with my on-line satsaṅga-s every weekend. Now I am explaining my own book: "Spirituality - Volume 1". I add a new ~1 hour video every week to the "Spirituality - Volume 1" playlist on my YouTube channel. So far the playlist contains 3 videos. Check it out!
  6. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).
  7. Enjoy!

10/21/2022 - Aṣṭādhyāyī: Read here!

pic 56

  1. Front page in Pāṇini's Aṣṭādhyāyī has been published! The whole scripture contains 8 chapters containing 351, 268, 631, 635, 564, 736, 438 and 369 aphorisms, respectively, totaling 3992. In turn, each of those chapters is divided into four subchapters. The writing style is, anyway, very concise. Why? Because those 3992 aphorisms were supposed to be memorized by apprentices of Sanskrit grammar. So, Pāṇini tried to write so briefly as possible in order to make memorization any simpler. Of course, that brevity made the aphorisms more cryptic!
  2. In Abhinavagupta's Tantrasāra: Chapter 7 and chapter 8 are fully available now in English (though no polishing so far). Chapter 9's English translation is in progress right now!
  3. Translations to Spanish and other languages are in process.
  4. My wife and collaborator, Natalia Ambikā, was translating hard again in Russian language!: Tantrasāra's chapter 4 and chapter 5. VERY WELL!
  5. I continue with my on-line satsaṅga-s every weekend. Now I am explaining my own Trikamukhyamatāni (Main Tenets of Trika Shaivism). I add a new ~1 hour video every week to the Trikamukhyamatāni playlist on my YouTube channel. So far the playlist contains 19 videos, i.e. around 19 hours full of teachings. Check it out!
  6. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).

  2. Translations to Spanish and other languages are in process.
  3. My wife and collaborator, Natalia Ambikā, was on a translation spree again!: Tantrasāra's chapter 1, chapter 2 and chapter 3, along with chapter 1 in Tantrāloka (fully translated into Russian language). EXCELLENT!
  4. I continue with my on-line satsaṅga-s every weekend. Now I am explaining my own Trikamukhyamatāni (Main Tenets of Trika Shaivism). I add a new ~1 hour video every week to the Trikamukhyamatāni playlist on my YouTube channel. So far the playlist contains 16 videos, i.e. around 16 hours full of teachings. Check it out!

09/13/2022 - Chapter 4: Read here!

pic 54

  1. I published now the long fourth chapter in Abhinavagupta's Tantrasāra. It deals with a person who has attained the enlightenment of his own mind. He stays completely absorbed in the pure thought. This is Śāktopāya (the means of Śakti). When he finally understands that his mind is just Śakti (the Power of the Great Lord), then he is promoted to the higher level (a.k.a. Śāmbhavopāya).
  2. English speakers have also access to chapter 5 and chapter 22 (in progress both) in Tantrasāra, as well as the 8th chapter in Tantrāloka. Translations to Spanish and other languages are in process.
  3. My wife and collaborator, Natalia Ambikā, was on a translation spree!: Bodhapañcadaśikā, Trikamukhyamatāni, Kalpanāṣaṭkam and chapter 1 in Tantrāloka (the latter is work in progress yet). VERY WELL!
  4. Moreover, I continue with my on-line satsaṅga-s every weekend. Now I am explaining my own Trikamukhyamatāni (Main Tenets of Trika Shaivism). I add a new ~1 hour video every week to the Trikamukhyamatāni playlist on my YouTube channel. So far the playlist contains 14 videos, i.e. around 14 hours full of teachings. Also, our collaborator, Ivan, has added "polished" subtitles in English in the first three videos there. Check it out!

08/30/2022 - NEWS: Read here!

pic 53

  1. My wife, Natalia Ambikā, finished her translation into Russian up to the stanza 105 in Abhinavagupta's Paramārthasāra. With this, she has completely finished translating the venerable scripture from English into Russian. It has taken months of hard effort indeed. Far from taking a deserved rest, she is already working on her next translation. CONGRATULATIONS!
  2. I published now the long third chapter in Abhinavagupta's Tantrasāra. It deals with a person who has attained the dissolution of his own mind. He can stay at will with his mind completely arrested. This is Śāmbhavopāya (the means of Śambhu). Liberation is here practically on the palm of your hand.
  3. I am already starting my translation of the "longer" fourth chapter. To translate Abhinavagupta's scriptures is always uphill. It is very heavy as the sage is extremely scholarly and... confusing too. And do not expect him to be didactic or something. If to read Abhinavagupta's stuff is already a hard task, you can imagine how hard is to translate his writings from Sanskrit. I do not wish this on anyone, really, and I am not joking. I have headaches many times because of him. Other symptoms that you are translating Abhinavagupta's stuff is that things begin to get broken around you (Tantrasāra was NO exception), and sometimes people die, or you experience some other mysterious mishaps happening exactly when you start to translate Abhinavagupta's writings. This is very normal and again I am not joking. That is why to deal with the energy contained in his books is a pain always. Kind of radioactivity. For all that, I am not certainly in love with translating his scriptures. I never revealed this before, but I am doing it right now. I only make this great effort now for the sake of my own disciples, as I said before in a previous news.
  4. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).

  1. As I promised, I started to publish my own writings in Sanskrit at "Scripture/Gurujī's writings" (check the accordion menu on the right, please). The first two writings I added are: Kalpanāṣaṭkam (Six stanzas about imagination) and Trikamukhyamatāni (Main tenets of Trika Shaivism). I am very happy with sharing my simple writings with the whole world!
  2. My wife, Natalia Ambikā, finished her translation into Russian up to the stanza 99 in Abhinavagupta's Paramārthasāra. She is now very near the end of the scripture, which consists of 105 stanzas. Great job, as usual!
  3. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).

08/20/2022 - SHORT NEWS 2: Read here!

pic 51

  1. ANOTHER SHORT NEWS!
  2. As I promised, I am publishing now the famous Abhinavagupta's Bodhapañcadaśikā (Fifteen stanzas about Knowledge/Consciousness). This short scripture is a summary of Trika Shaivism. It is intended for all those people with weak intellects who cannot deal with massive treatises like Tantrāloka, Tantrasāra, Parātrīśikāvivaraṇa, etc. (written by Abhinavagupta too). Despite its brevity, Bodhapañcadaśikā is very famous in the Trika Shaivism community.
  3. Now I will prepare the subsection for my own writings under "Scriptures" (check the menu on the right), as I promised too. At first, I will include a short poetry I composed many years ago.
  4. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).
  5. Enjoy!

08/18/2022 - SHORT NEWS: Read here!

pic 50

  1. SHORT NEWS!
  2. I published now the short second chapter in Abhinavagupta's Tantrasāra. It deals with a person who attains Liberation instantly after hearing only once that "he is Śiva Himself" from his own Guru. This is Anupāya (devoid of means) as there is no means (practices) to achieve the final Goal of a human being.
  3. I will publish another short but famous Abhinavagupta's scripture soon.
  4. I am planning to add my own writings (scriptures?) to this website. As my "scriptures" are written in very simple Sanskrit are not on a par with the ones of Glorious Śiva, Majestic Abhinavagupta, Sublime Kṣemarāja and the rest of great Trika sages, and I cannot include them in the "Scriptures/Trika scriptures" subsection together with those of the tremendous authors of yore. I am not so arrogant and crazy yet. Consequently, I will create a special subsection under the "Scriptures" section called "Gurujī's writings" or something. This will enrich the website, I hope. Wish me luck!
  5. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).

08/16/2022 - GREAT NEWS: Read here!

pic 49

  1. MANY GREAT NEWS!
  2. Our Canadian collaborator, Marlon Melin, launched the 2022 version of his fantastic Sanskrit Editor. It is ready for you to download it, but before installing it remember to uninstall first the previous version of the Sanskrit Editor you might be using. Now his editor is fully functional in Windows 11! Many fixes and improvements have been made. Additionally, there is now support for more languages in the download file: English (default), Spanish, German, French, Hungarian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian and Tamil. It is very easy to change to your native language other than English (check the Help menu). If you think that a particular language pack is in need of a correction, you can send Marlon an email at with your correction. Sanskrit Editor (2022) is the software Gabriel Pradīpaka uses on this website. It is not only for Sanskrit scholars, anyway, but for any person who is searching a very handy tool like this one for all his Sanskrit needs.
  3. I, Gabriel Pradīpaka, after a long time dedicated to writing my books, undertake now the translation of venerable Abhinavagupta's Tantrasāra (Essence of Tantra), a summary of voluminous Tantrāloka. I finished the first chapter dealing with an explanation of the different kinds of knowledge/consciousness. This chapter 1 is a good summarized version of the first chapter in Tantrāloka. I am making this great effort only for the sake of my own disciples. The rest of fit people in this irrelevant humankind will benefit from my effort anyway. Tantrasāra was written by request of Abhinavagupta's disciples, as they could not properly deal with extensive Tantrāloka. Abhinavagupta then composed a sizable summary of his Tantrāloka in the form of this Tantrasāra.
  4. My wife finished her Russian translation up to the stanza 95 in Abhinavagupta's Paramārthasāra. Great effort, as always! She is very near the end of the scripture.
  5. I will start to score websites in my Sanskrit Directory very soon! The greatest websites there will receive the maximum number of stars. If your website is included there, check the Sanskrit Directory regularly to see your score.
  6. Also, I published in Amazon.com and other important bookstores my Spanish translation of the first volume of Abhinavagupta's Tantrāloka (Chapters 1, 2 and 3).
  7. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).

06/14/2022 - Important news: Read here!

pic 48

  1. My wife and collaborator, Natalia Ambikā, finished in Russian up to the stanza 82 in Abhinavagupta's Paramārthasāra. Since the whole scripture contains 105 stanzas, she is, little by little, approaching the end of it. She is doing an excellent job with this. Her translation is permitting Russian-speaking visitors to drink from the Nectar of Wisdom contained in sublime Paramārthasāra. Congratulations!
  2. Another important news: My private satsaṅga-s by Skype started to become public. I began explaining my book "Trikamukhyamatāni" (Main Tenets of Trika Shaivism) last Saturday and already published the first video on my YouTube channel: Trikamukhyamatāni playlist is here.
  3. Currently I am working on my translation of Tantrāloka. I am polishing many things there and I will add another chapter soon. I translated by now around 37% of the entire scripture (very loooooooooooooooooooooooong indeed). If I had been Abhinavagupta, I would have written something much shorter in order not to demolish the weak intellects of most people in this foolish world. Therefore, my work will take some time (ages, maybe :D). The intellects of most people are weak because they try to satisfy every desire they have, because they give themselves over to stupid emotions the whole day, because they do not think by themselves but they rather blindly follow others' opinions, because they live inside a nut their entire lives and at the same time aspire to reach Heaven, because they are mostly frivolous and trivial, because they worship their bodies as if these ones were the eternal Truth, because they are based at the end on violence, because their supposed sense of self-importance is false, because they are completely lost despite they pretend to be "in control", and so on and on. For all those reasons, they are not ready to understand such a lengthy/complex scripture like Tantrāloka. Anyway, I continue with my efforts for the 0.00001% of the world population.
  4. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).

05/31/2022 - 23rd anniversary: Read here!

pic logonew

ANNIVERSARY: 23 YEARS!

  1. We —all the collaborators, disciples and I— are extremely happy with a new anniversary of our beloved website. 23 years giving free stuff without the least advertising!
  2. To keep a big website running is expensive in efforts and money. We have managed to do it for 23 years by now without pestering you with annoying ads. By the way, right today I received another email from another advertising company suggesting me to put ads on our website. No way they will convince me because I dislike ads in all of their forms.
  3. Total yearly visits are around 1 million. This is a healthy number if you consider the topics being dealt with here. Obviously, if I published pictures of naked women, I would get 1 million visits per day! Such is the nature of this foolish world.
  4. My wife and collaborator, Natalia Ambikā, finished in Russian up to the stanza 78 in Abhinavagupta's Paramārthasāra. Massive effort!
  5. The Sanskrit Directory contains now 200 links to relevant websites! To filter 200 links I needed to check 2000+ websites, of course, which has been exhausting to me. Hopefully it was worth the effort. My first goal is to reach 300 links, the number of links the directory had many years ago. I continue my work on that.
  6. I published the first volume of my Tantrāloka collection in English (the Abhinavagupta's Magnum Opus). To translate such a long scripture is a very hard work. For now, I am publishing the first three chapters in this first volume. The entire Tantrāloka contains 37 chapters.
  7. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).
  8. Happy anniversary! Enjoy!

04/11/2022 - A promise is a promise: Read here!

pic 47

  1. A promise is a promise. I am rebuilding the link directory (Sanskrit Directory) with a brand-new software we bought. In the past we used two softwares: Jade and phpMydirectory. Now, we are using "Link Directory Pro".
  2. The previous Sites of the Year (from 2004 to 2014, except two of them which were discontinued) were duly added. I am still NOT scoring websites with stars (I will do it soon as this new software naturally evolves). For now, I am only marking very-high-quality websites with a "featured" mark. Anyway, the visitors can score the websites "with stars" inside the "redirection page".
  3. You can access the Sanskrit Directory by clicking on LINKS in the above navigation bar.
  4. If you want your Sanskrit-universe-related website on the directory, you can send me an email with your suggestion. I will check it out and decide. I will be adding more and more websites during this week (and the next too maybe). Therefore, you will see new sites appearing day after day. And yes, I am also planning for the future to add the "Site of the Year" feature to the directory. I am very glad with all these announcements!
  5. My wife and collaborator, Natalia Ambikā, finished in Russian up to the stanza 66 now in Abhinavagupta's Paramārthasāra. Incredible efforts! Congratulations!
  6. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).

  2. I updated the Parabhairavayoga Gallery with 141 pictures of the last year! Check them out!
  3. A brand-new book in Spanish is available now for people: "Tres himnos en honor de Śiva y Guru" (hard cover version). The Kindle version is in the works and coming soon.

02/22/2022 - New book: Read here!

pic 45

  1. My wife and collaborator, Natalia Ambikā, finished in Russian up to the stanza 50 in Abhinavagupta's Paramārthasāra. Enormous efforts made by her here as this scripture is very tricky for translators. Congratulations!
  2. A brand-new book in English is available now for people: "Three hymns in honor of Śiva and Guru". This book contains three hymns that the participants must recite while they are worshiping: Śivamahimnaḥ stotram, Śivamānasapūjā and Gurugītā. It is indeed recommended for a wide range of spiritual seekers from different spiritual traditions.
  3. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).
  4. The Spanish version of "Three hymns in honor of Śiva and Guru" is coming soon! Tamás István Énisz is editing it. Stay sharp!
  5. Russian readers cannot buy from Amazon.com the paper versions of my books (because it is not shipping to Russia from there). Instead, they should buy them from Amazon.es (from Spain). Kindle versions (electronic versions) of my books are, of course, available from Amazon.com.
  6. Enjoy!
 

12/12/2021 - SOMETHING NEW: Read here!

pic 44

  1. My wife and collaborator, Natalia Ambikā, finished in Russian up to the stanza 23 in Abhinavagupta's Paramārthasāra. The Yogarāja's commentary included in this page is particularly difficult to understand. So, she was making vigorous efforts to translate that commentary into her native language so accurately as possible. Congratulations!
  2. And now more great news for the Spanish-speakers, because a new book in Spanish is available: "Parabhairavayogasaṁsthāpanapracodanam: Principios Fundacionales del Parabhairavayoga (Spanish Edition)". This book is very important. It contains the 92 principles my Parabhairavayoga is based on. I must specially thank Tamás István Énisz for having edited this beautiful book.
  3. Although Amazon.com is the central headquarters for all my books, they are also available at: Barnes & Noble, Ebay, Booklooker, Betterworldbooks, MercadoLibre, and many more (search "gabriel pradiipaka" on all those websites).
  4. A new book in Spanish is coming soon! Tamás István Énisz is editing it. Stay sharp!

The former contains all the chants that are approved to use in our Parabhairavayoga community, while the latter includes all the chants to use during a Yajña or Ritual of Worship, such as we perform it in our community as well. I must specially thank Tamás István Énisz for having edited the books.
  3. Two new books in Spanish are coming soon! Tamás István Énisz is editing one and I am revising the other. Stay sharp!

  3. And now great news for the Spanish-speakers: My first book in Spanish is already a reality: "Principios Fundamentales del Shaivismo Trika"; on paper and also in digital Kindle format. It took me several days of hard effort to translate the English version into Spanish.

Thank you very much!
  4. In this book I describe in Sanskrit poetry (with meter) the 25 main tenets of the system it is my specialty: Trika Shaivism, also known as Non-dual Shaivism of Kashmir, or simply Kashmir Shaivism (plainly). The present text consists of twelve introductory stanzas, twenty-five stanzas describing the twenty-five principles, two stanzas like a kind of epilogue, and a final stanza. In total, 40 stanzas written in meters Ārya and Āryagīti, non-strict, for the delight of the readers.
