Non-dual Shaivism of Kashmir - Tour
This guide follows the main menu's scheme in that it shows only the front page (the main one) in case of a set of pages linked to one another. For instance, Bhagavadgītā is composed of a front page and several subpages (the respective chapters). Well, the main menu just exhibits a link to the front page and "not" to the chapters. This was so designed to make the menu so lighter as possible. Too many submenus in the main menu and those visitors with slow connections will suffer the consequences, you know.
On the contrary, our Sitemap shows "all" links to "all" pages (look for "Vedānta" in the "Scriptures" section of the Sitemap and see it by yourself). In spite of this only difference between the main menu's scheme and that of the Sitemap, there is a complete coherence between both. Ah, a final advise: move the mouse pointer over the list of links to get additional information.
All right, let us get down to work!

- The Trika section is primarily related to Trika system, also called Non-dual Shaivism of Kashmir. Trika is the specialty of Gabriel Pradīpaka. However, additional studies in Tantra have been also published here because Trika was born from the encounter between Tantricism and traditional Shaivism in Kashmir over a thousand years ago. Everybody can read this section without any previous requirements, but they should follow the order of the documents [e.g. Trika 1 (English), Trika 2 (English), etc.], specially if beginners in Trika.
