(Vimarśa): Reflection in consciousness, an expression of Shakti indissolubly united with Shiva. In Kashmir Shaivism, the Supreme Reality is often described as prakasha (uncreated light) and vimarsha (the reflected light of consciousness). Vimarsha is the principle of Self-awareness. It is “the mirror of Shiva,” the awareness of Awareness, or the “I-I” (as Ramana Maharshi used to call essential Self-awareness).
