India history and geogprahy

Pantheism refers to one of the various systems of belief and worship that once existed in ancient Kashmir (Kaśmīra) as mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa.—The idea that the whole world is God or a manifestation of God is also present in the Nīlamata. The whole earth is a form of the goddess Satī. The earth, the water, the air, the sky, the fire, the sun, the moon, and the sacrifìcer, all are regarded as the eight forms of Śiva.
