I assume this means 'giving and receiving' are not in Sivadharma. What about
the emotional bhakti features such as voice trembling, tears in the eyes,
horripilation and such? How firm is the date of Sivadharma?
Thanks in advance.

The first two lines occur with not much variation in the Sivadharma which is
an ancient (circa 5th century) saiva text and very authoritative one for
saiva rites and basic conducts of saivas.
In fact quite a good number of inscriptions of Chola kings from 11th century
mention special endowments given by these kings for study and expounding of
the Sivadharma in famous Siva temples.
