As I have argued (Acri2011a:18–20) these ‘genres’ may derive from the division of early Śaiva Saiddhāntika Sanskrit scriptures (or sections thereof) into jñānapāda (‘section on Knowledge) yogapāda (‘section on Yoga’) kriyāpāda (‘section on Ritual’ caryāpāda (‘section on conduct’).
Contrarily to Stephen (2005) which attempts at linking several key features of ‘Balinese Hinduism’ to similar features of Indic Tantrism. Regrettably Stephen’s useful study albeit appearing in the bibliography does not seem to have been fully used by the authors of the book under review.
