..... and History No; 3;;This second volume of the Suksmagama critical edition contains descriptions of a variety of rites and ceremonies concerning divinities and humans, mostly performed in the temple. Many of them are in the form of festivals celebrated in honour of Siva and the Goddess. Others include anointing the Linga with a continuous flow of liquids, less well known ceremonies connected with the Goddess, special rites exclusively performed for the sake of kings, as well as ordeals and an interesting and unusual chapter dealing with the organisation of the temple personnel.
