The transliterations of the Sanskrit mantras and hymns follow the precision international system which uses diacritical marks.Read more ›
So the book is to recommend to everyone, who practices any form of Shaiva sadhana, independent of the philosophy. Pujas are not explained in this book, rather one gets the mantras for it. But one can use the mantras without pujas, as well.
The pujas (ceremonial worship) are at intermediate and advanced levels, but may be adjusted to suit individual needs. They include the one hundred and eight names, the thousand names, pranapratishta, and various nyasas, including anga, kara, samhara and bahya matrika nyasas, and pitha nyasa where the yantra is placed over the heart and the place of worship established there.
Various bits of useful and devotional scriptures are also included in this book, like Shankara's Sadhana Panchakam, Shivo Ham Shivo Ham, Rudrashtakam, Lingashtakam, and Bhava Sagara, among others.
As I said, this book is a treasure. It is one to grow with, begining small and adding more to your practice as you gain experience. For anyone wishing to learn the method of the fire offering, this is an excellent source.
