Description
The Mahotsavavidhi, a 12th-century Sanskrit text, provides detailed guidelines for a Saiva temple priest in performing a nine-day "great festival" for the god Siva. Its author, Aghorasiva, is highly esteemed in the Saiva Siddhanta school, and his long work on ritual procedures, Kriyakramadyotika (of which the Mahotsavavidhi is only part), is the Agama work most employed by temple priests and pious Saivas today. Because the text was written for an audience of working priests, Aghorasiva employs a highly technical idiom, therefore Asian studies and religion professor Richard Davis annotates his translation extensively with explanations and expansions drawn from other Agama works.

"The introduction constitutes an excellent and accessible discussion of the temple culture of 12h-century Tamilnad that will be essential reading for all scholars and students of medieval temple Hinduism."Religious Studies Review
