Satarudriya: Vibhuti Or Shiva'S Iconography
Abhinav Publications, 2004 - 150 pages
The present book on ‘Satarudriya: Vibhuti of Siva’s Iconography’ is not only the text from the Krishnayajurveda Taittiriya Samhita with its translation but is a discussion of the epithets and their significance in the context of the iconographic concepts associated with Siva and the importance of this Vedic text in understanding the immanence of the Almighty conceived as Rudra. These discussions are illustrated by a bunch of chosen examples of art that form the plates accompanying the text.
