Mantreswara – God of Mantra In Kashmir Shaivism

Mantreswara is the god of mantra in Kashmir Shaivism. Tantras are monotheistic; gods are aspects of the Supreme Truth and are generated by His Shakti. Each god has two forms, the visualized and the sonic, i.e., mantra. The mantra form of a deity is closer to the ultimate reality and is more potent.
