In search of Utpaladeva’s lost Vivṛti on the Pratyabhijñā treatise: a report on the latest discoveries (with the Vivṛti on the end of Chapter 1.8)

Abstract : The Īśvarapratyabhijñā treatise – an important philosophical text composed in Kashmir in the 10th century CE by the Śaiva nondualist Utpaladeva – remains partly unavailable to date: a crucial component of this work, namely the detailed commentary (Vivṛti or Ṭīkā) in which Utpaladeva explained his own verses, is considered as almost entirely lost, since only a small part of it has been preserved in a single, very incomplete manuscript remarkably edited and translated by Raffaele Torella. However, our knowledge of the Vivṛti is quickly expanding: many additional fragments have recently come to light. The article gives an overview of these new findings while highlighting the most interesting of them, i.e. the discovery of the lengthiest Vivṛti fragment known to date in the margins of a manuscript containing Abhinavagupta’s Vivṛtivimarśinī. It also provides an edition and translation of the beginning of this fragment. https://paris3.academia.edu/IsabelleRati%C3%A9
