Written by: Jaideva Singh
Published by: Motilal Banarsidass

This little work is a digest of the pratyabhijna system of Kashmir Saiva philosophy, prepared by Ksemaraja, the illustrious disciple of Abhinavagupta. It avoids all polemics and gives in a very succinct form (20 sutras) the main tenets of the Pratyabhijna presentd by Utpala. Pratyabhijna means recognition.

Jiva is Siva; by identifying himself with his body, Jiva has forgotten his real nature. This teaching is ment to enable Jiva to recognise his own real self i.e., Siva and to suggest to him the spiritual discipline needed to attain 'at-one-ment' with SIVA.
