    Kashmir Shaivism books reading order

    I found a post on the books on Kashmir Shaivism here. I would like to know what is the recommended reading order from simple to very difficult read?

    Could anyone please suggest the order? I understand Shiva Sutras is good to start with for a beginner to Kashmir Shaivism.

    ॐ महेश्वराय नमः

    || Om Namo Bhagavate Rudraya ||

    Hara Hara Mahadeva Shambo Shankara

    Re: Kashmir Shaivism books reading order

    A friend of mine has been a very devout student of Kashmir Shaivism for a long time. This is the reading list he personally recommended to me-

    Tantra Illuminated by Christopher Wallis
    Recognition Sutras by Christopher Wallis
    Vijnana Bhairava Tantra (Christopher Wallis translation)
    --Wallis series on the VBT on youtube
    --Mark Dyczkowski's course on the VBT
    --Lakshmanjoo's book on the VBT
    Shiva Sutras (Dyczkowski's edition with Bhaskara's commentary, Lakshmanjoo's edition with Ksemaraja's commentary, either is good)
    Kashmir Shaivism: Secret Supreme by Lakshmanjoo
    Triadic Heart of Shiva by Muller-Ortega
    Christopher Wallis's PhD dissertation
    Malinivijayottara - a critical edition with notes and translation by Somadeva Vasudeva as Yoga of Malinivijayottara
    Yoga of Mrgendra
    Matsyendra Samhita
    Yogapada from Netra Tantra (Christopher Wallis translation)
    Svacchanda yoga section translation
    Good luck to you. I'm still working on this list myself.
    ॐ नमः शिवाय
