Each year between July and August, when the moon is full, thousands of devotees gather before the Adobe of Shiva, commonly known as the Cave of Shri Amarnatha in Kashmir, situated at a height of 388O metres in the Himalayas. It houses the naturally formed ice lingam, the symbol of creation, which waxes and wanes with the moon. It is here that Shiva lives with His consort Parvati, in the shape of two pigeons which are seen flying out of this sacred cave.
Sri Amarnatha Cave, by Prof. Fida Hassnain is an original research work, based on the ancient Sanskrit Mahatmya Amareshvara, a work of antiquity. Here is revealed the secret of salvation, as told by Shiva to Parvati.
The book would be of great interest to the scholars of ideology, as well as devotees of Shiva.
