Vijñâna Bhairava Tantra
The Vijñâna Bhairava Tantra, is one of the basic Âgamas containing the spiritual practice of the
non-dualistic Shaivism of Kashmir. It has been considered authoritative by all the masters of the
Shaiva tradition of Kashmir. It is called the essence of the Rudrayâmala Tantra, which is now lost
in its entirety. (…) Abhinavagupta shows his great respect for the Vijñâna Bhairava by calling it
Shivavijñânopanishad, 'the Secret Teaching (of the mystical knowledge) of Shiva'.
