The present book being an English translation of a German book entitled Der Saiva Siddhanta by H.W. Schomerus gives a full and documented account of this theistic movement then as now little known in the West. The book quickly became and still is the major reference work in this field in any European language.
Schomerus cites siddhanta scriptures on each point. His book thus offers a systematic theology of the movement from its own basic texts many of which are not otherwise available in English.
"The book is a great treasure worthy to be possessed not only by Saiva
Siddhanta followers but by all who value such mighty inputs to the mosaic
of Hindu religion and philosophy." - HINDU
