I have read some KS but found the works I read to be very technical (much like advaita I guess, which is über precise in its use of language). I have taken it to all be about balance, uncertainty and paradox.Nefastos wrote:Welcome, Heathen_Soul! I love Advaita-Vedanta also, & like you, do not see it as a justification for inaction or passivity. That is why my own sympathies shifted even more to the Kashmir Shaivism when it comes to the mystico-symbolical applications of the doctrine, although I consider the Advaita-Vedanta to be a correct foundation of the philosophical metaphysics. In KS, the Unity is seen in the form of the polar God–Goddess -union where neither part, the spiritual transcendence or the feminine halo of magical action, is seen as the higher than the other: they are equal, and both together are our quintessential core.
Any KS recommendation would be appreciated
