The thesis attempts to present a critical study of the concept of self in Kashmir Saivism. The setting for this study is the encounter between Kasmir Saivism and Buddhism. However the thesis also proposes to arrive at an understanding of the religious pre-suppositions behind the positions adopted by Kasmir Saivism and Buddhism in their explanations of experience. In conclusions it is briefly noted that the Buddhist critique of the concept of self of Brahmanical systems has, to a certain extent, contributed to shape the distinctive concept of self as understood in Kasmir Saiva thought.
