In Parvatidarpana, Harsha V. Dehejia exposits the basic tenets of Kashmir Shaivism through the celebrated marriage of Shiva and Parvati and the image of Ardhanarishvara. Enjoyment of the mythic marriage and the image leads to a greater understanding of Kashmir Shaivism, and the epistemology of this philosophical system in turn leads the aesthete to a greater celebration of the arts inspired by this mythic event. Image leads to the idea and the idea in turn leads one back to the image creating a rich aesthetic experience.
