The monograph, Systems of Vedanta and Kashmir Shaivism (c. A.D. 300–1000) is an excellent overview of the essential concepts of the various schools of Vedanta as offered by its acharyas who lived within the epochal time of Indian philosophy around A.D. 300–1000. Kashmir Shaivism—as the very name indicates—which pertains to Kashmir, is nondualistic in approach unlike its southern counterparts, the Shaiva-siddhanta and Vira-Shaivism. It is noteworthy that the author has also taken for consideration this less known, yet sophisticated non-dualistic school of Kashmir Shaivism. Other lesser known schools of Vedanta, which we find mentioned in the vast commentatorial tradition—such as the Bhedabheda as well as Shabdadvaita of Bhartrhari—have also been briefly covered.
