"Absolutely real and not Mithya" would mean that the world exists independent
of any basis (i. e. Shiva and Parvati). My understanding was that Kashmir
Shaivism believed in illusory world, but I may be wrong, not being very well

Still my first  (mukhya) interpretation is independent of whether Kashmir
Shaivism considers World as absolute reality or not.
