Translation Projects

Wild Garden Yoga is currently working on an accessible, non-scholarly translation of Spanda-karikas, translated in the edition by Jaideva Singh as The Divine Creative Pulsation.  A core text of Kashmir Shaivism, this work describes divine consciousness as

                ". . . active, dynamic, throbbing with life, creative pulsation."
                                                                (Singh, Spanda-karikas, Preface).

Excerpts will be posted on this site as they become available.
