Western philosophers have searched throughout the ages for the elusive entity called consciousness, but nowhere has it been captured better than in the Shiva Sutras. The Shiva Sutras are an unquestionably demanding set of verses, containing a compact exposition of spiritual philosophy. It is said that any seeker who accepts the challenge of deeply contemplating this text will come to understand the divine revelations of Lord Shiva, the creator, preserver, and destroyer of the universe.
Finding the Hidden Self is an exploration of the Shiva Sutras, which was written to make this ancient scripture easily accessible and understandable to the Western seeker. The sutras describe the creative principle behind the universe and how it manifests to human consciousness.
