AMARNATH
The Waxing and Waning Sivalinga of Amarnath

HISTORICITY

The Raja-Tarangani embodies countless instances of Kings, patronage and adherence to Saivism. The Kashmir Saivism has a distinct flavor, and it differs from the Savviest propounded by celebrated pravaktas like Sankaracharya, and it has a special name - Trika Mata. It is classified into three parts - Agama Sastra, Spanda Sasta, and Pratyabhijna. They are of superior origin and teach dualistic doctrine, and as such they are opposed to idealistic monism explained in Siva Sutras said to have been revealed by Siva Himself. Distinguished prophets and theists became votaries of this sect and eminent writers and commentators, like Vasugupla, Somananda, etc., wrote monumental works exemplifying their findings. They emphasized the basic principle that the Highest Light is eternal and imperishable and it is of the nature- of the Pranava Mantra - AUM throbbing in the heart of everyone". All these treatises eulogies lord Maheswar's Ominicompassion, who in his waxing-waning form is giving darsan  in the cave, besides appearing in -the form of pigeons to the devotees cm their visit to this  holy thirtha kshertra.
