" The Pratyabhijnahridayam is one of the most important texts in the Trika tradition. It offers a clear distillation of the Kashmiri Shaivite doctrine of Self-recognition, which maps the journey through which absolute consciousness becomes human consciousness, and then expands to recognize its non-difference from the Absolute. Christopher Wallis has given us a reliable and graceful translation of the text and its commentary. I recommend this book both for the elegance of the text itself, and for the elegance of Wallis' translation." Sally Kempton, author, Awakening Shakti
