    Implicit Anthropologies in Pre-philosophical Śaivism with Particular Reference to the Netra-tantra.Gavin Flood - 2020 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 48 (4):675-701.

  6. The Ascetic Self: Subjectivity, Memory and Tradition.Gavin Flood - 2004 - Cambridge University Press.

Such a performance contains an ambiguity or distance between the general intention to eradicate the will, or in some sense to erase the self, (...)

    The Teachings of the Odd-Eyed One: A Study and Translation of the Vīrūpakṣapañcāśikā with the Commentary of Vidyācakravartin, by David Peter Lawrence, provides a critical translation and a philosophical and historical introduction to a work of the nondualistic Śaiva tradition of Kashmir, the Virūpakṣapañcasikha (VAP) with a commentary (Vivṛti) by Vidyācakravartin.
