    The best known expression of advaitic (non-dual) philosophy is certainly the Advaita Vedānta of Śaṅkarācārya, but Kashmir Śaivism give us an alternative form of advaita that stands in contrast to Śaṅkara’s teachings. In this session we will also consider the history of Kashmir Śaivism and its position in the modern world. Shaivism, organized worship of the Indian god Shiva and, with Vaishnavism and Shaktism, one of the three principal forms of modern Hinduism. Shaivism includes such diverse movements as the highly philosophical Shaiva-siddhanta, the socially distinctive Lingayat, ascetics such as the dashnami.

    What is meant by the word “Shaivam”? All that is related to the religion of the God Shiva. Śaivism proclaims: God Śiva is Love, both immanent and transcendent, both the creator and the creation. This world is the arena of our evolution, which leads by stages to moksha, liberation from birth and death. Kashmir Shaivism or more accurately Trika Shaivism refers to a nondualist tradition of Śaiva-Śakta Tantra which originated sometime after CE. Though this tradition was very influential in Kashmir and is thus often called Kashmir Shaivism, it was actually a pan-Indian movement termed "Trika" by its great exegete Abhinavagupta, which also flourished in Oḍiśā and Mahārāṣṭra.

    Among the various Hindu philosophies, Kaśmir Śaivism is a school of Śaivism identical with trika shaivism categorized by various scholars as monisticidealism (absolute idealism, theistic monism, realistic idealism, transcendental physicalism or concrete monism). These descriptors denote a standpoint that Cit - consciousness - is the one reality. Matter is not separated from consciousness. Swami Shankarananda distinguishes two contemporary traditions of Kaśmir Śaivism in his book, Consciousness is Everything (the Indian edition is called The Yoga of Kashmir Shaivism, from Motilal Banarsidass in Delhi, ISBN: X) see especially pages 47 through
