the Bhoga Karika is a collection of Sanskrit verses by the renowned Saivite teacher and writer Sadyojyoti of the eighty century A. D. This translation of the Bhoga karika also includes a short commentary by the similarly renowned Aghora Siva of the twelth century. In a lively and engaging manner the Bhoga Karika defends the Agamic Saivite theology epistemology and ontology of bhoga or mundane worldy experience against the attacks of rival schools notably the Naiyayikas Samkhyas carvakas and Buddhists.
