This has been revealed by the author at the end of the work by way of acknowledgement of his indebtedness to an accomplished yogini appearing suddenly before him following her performance of worship of his deity, namely, Parama Siva or Bhairava with patched cloth on her body, trident and skull in her hands.

Maheshvarananda, a full accomplished yogin of the class of Kashmir Saivism seems to have been initially initiated by Yogini Keyurvati who herself was the disciple of Sivananda.

Mahartha-Manjari is an important text of Kashmir Saivism. It belongs to the 14th century A.D. and is written in Maharastrian Prakrta but at the same time, its Sanskrit version was also presented by the author alongside the commentary known as Parimala. It is a work of just seventy verses. What is particularly significant is that is claimed to have been the result of the state of super-consciousness.
