Summary
The Mahotsavavidhi of the Saiva preceptor Aghorasiva, completed in 1157 c.e., provides step-by-step guidance for a Hindu priest conducting a nine-day festival in medieval India. This annotated rendering of Aghorasiva's 12th-century work is the first extensive translation of a medieval work on Hindu temple festivals into a European language
