Tantra - 11 - Northern and Southern Shavia Tantric traditions

The Kashmiri Shaivas considered the GYAna part of the southern Shaiva Agamas as authoritative. However they were reluctant to accept any dualist or pluralist standpoint.

The northern Shaivas were reluctant to over-emphasize on rituals like the Southern traditionalists did.

The form of the Shaiva Tantras are more diversified than the Agamas.

Another distinguishing feature of the Norther Shaiva Tantric literature is the attention given to the notion of Shakti.
