The complete text (10th century A.D.) is a compendium of all Tntrika rituals and philosophical essence of Tantra drawn from the light of all pre-precepts on Indian Tantra till the time of the creator. This text consists of thirty seven chapters. It reflects on Tantra from the background of Kashmir saivism which is known as the monistic philosophy of saivism. Abhinavagupta explains here in a lucid way about the ways to worship the Supreme Consciousness in order to attain this state of Absolute ecstasy and liberation in one single life of mankind.
