About Book “Universal Aivism"
In Universal aivism Peter Bisschop provides a critical edition and annotated translation of the sixth chapter of the ivadharma stra`Treatise on the Religion of iva’, the so-called ntyadhy ya ‘Chapter on Appeasement’. The Sanskrit text is preceded by an extensive introduction on its composition, transmission and edition. The ivadharma stra has arguably played a crucial role in the formation, development and institutionalisation of aivism. Through a detailed study of its extensive nti mantra, Peter Bisschop shows how the text advocates a system in which all worldly and cosmic power is ultimately dependent upon iva. The mantra itself is a mine of information on the evolving pantheon of early Brahmanical Hinduism. Thanks to generous support of the J. Gonda Fund Foundation, the e-book version of this volume is available in Open Access.
