Mokṣopāya-Ṭīkā of Bhāskarakaṇṭha

The Fragments of the Nirvāṇaprakaraṇa
Part I
Critical Edition

This volume continues the publication of the fragments of the Mokṣopā­ya with the commentary of the Kashmiri Shaivite philosopher Bhāskarakaṇṭha critically edited by Walter Slaje (Mokṣo­pā­ya-Ṭī­kā I–IV). It contains the critical edition of the first half of the large extant fragment of the Nir­vā­ṇa­pra­ka­raṇa — the sixth section of the Mokṣopāya, the last and by far the most substantial —  with Bhās­ka­ra­kaṇṭha’s commentary Nir­vā­ṇa­ṭīkā. The Mokṣo­pā­ya, a huge philosophico-soteriological work probably composed by a Kashmiri author in the tenth century of our era, was the original version of what would become the Yo­ga­vā­siṣ­ṭha, which enjoyed enormous popularity in India, in certain regions second only to the two great epic poems.
