I'm an author on yoga and Hinduism myself, so people often ask me where they should go to learn more about tantra or Shaivism. This is the book I refer them to. You won't find a clearer, more accurate, more readable account on the topic in the English language. Amazon only allows me to give it five stars; if they'd let me, I'd give it ten! Mysticism in Shaivism and Christianity Scholarly comparative study, essays by ten specialists. Mysticism in Shaivism and Christianity is an excellent collection of writings both of Shaivism and Christianity.
The book is the outcome of a spiritual dialogue between Saivas and Christians called the Rajpur Seminar. The papers are well-written and both inspirational and informational. This collection is a rare glimpse into the world of mysticism both East and West. The Abishiktananda Society supported the Seminar and the preparation of the book.

Topics in the collection include: What is Mysticism by Alois M. Shaivism In The Light of Epics, Puranas and Agamas Saivism encompasses all aspects of religion: a philosophy, a theology, a conception of the universe, a current of devotion, a world of myths, elaborate rituals in organized temples, expressions in plastic arts, in poetry, music, dance. Images of Siva of great variety and impressive beauty are countless all over India. To improve our understanding of such a rich and elevated subject, the sources are the Sanskrit texts of Epics, Puranas and Agamas, The present book gives a clear presentation of Saivism through a survey and an erudite reading of this vast literature.
The Agamas are the key to the knowledge of temple organization and rituals, the description of which is a unique and original contribution of this work. This very readable work contains an amazing quantity of information, carefully referenced at ever step, and is likely to be of the greatest utility to researchers in history of religion, medieval to modern, as well as to the general reader interested in Saivis. Samvidullasah: Manifestation of Divine Consciousness: Swami Lakshman Joo Saint-Scholar of Kashmir Saivism Swami Lakshman Joo Raina, also called Lakshman Brahmacarin and Isvara Svarupa was one of the greatest saints of 20th century India, who was at the same time an extraordinary scholar who relived and revived the almost forgotten tradition of Kashmir Saivism.
His high spiritual state was matched by his profound knowledge of the Saiva scriptures and of the great thinkers and commentators of the tradition - Abhinavagupta, Ksemaraja and others. Swami Lakshman Joo lived a secluded life in his ashram in Kashmir Saivism to Pandits and scholars from different countries, besides giving spiritual guidance to a number of seekers and disciples. On the occasion of his Birth Centenary, a volume in his memory is being brought out containing articles by scholar-disciples, devotees and relatives which throw light on the extraordinary life of this saint and on his contribution to reviving and continuing the tradition of Kashmir Saivism.
Articles on his life by his close disciple Prabha Devi and his scholar-disciples Jaideva Singh and Jankinath Kaul 'Kamal', an exhaustive article on his place in the Kashmirian Saiva tradition by Professor Alexis Sanderson of Oxford, to mention only a few, provide an insight into his saintly personality and his great qualities as a teacher. Even scholars and seekers who have never met him and have been deeply influenced by his spiritual presence have contributed an account of their experience. The volume is richly illustrated by historical photographs which provide a visual testimony of the life of Swami Lakshman Joo.
A list of his published works is an important complement.
