A central theme of the philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism is the highly esoteric principle known as Spanda. Swami Lakshmanjoo tells us that the word ‘spanda’ means established stable movement. That is, it is movementless-movement, vibrationless-vibration. It is this secret, mysterious, and yet essential principle that Swami Lakshmanjoo clarifies and elucidates in his revelation of the two texts dealing specifically with this principle, the Spanda Kārikā and the Spanda Sandoha.

The theory of Spanda is not new. It was hidden in the body of the Tantras and extracted by Vasugupta, founder of the Shiva Sutras, and initiator of monistic Shaivism in the valley of Kashmir. Vasagupta composed the Spanda Kārikā, a text filled with the fundamental precepts (kārikās) regarding spanda and the philosophy surrounding it. 

Kṣhemarāja, the chief disciple of the very important and central figure in the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, Abhinavagupta, is the author of the second pivotal text regarding spanda, the Spanda Sandoha. This text is an extensive exposition (sandoha) of the first verse of the Spanda Kārikā.
