Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD
The Shiva Sutra is one of the most profound and experiential tantric texts. Each of these 77 Sutras presents the experiences gained by the masters in the process of completing their spiritual quest. These masters were hatha yogis, deeply steeped in the practices of tantra and alchemy. They used their bodies as laboratories, combining the techniques of pranayama, mudras, herbs, gems, mantras, yantras, and mandalas. By applying the integrated techniques of yoga, tantra, ayurveda, and alchemy, they gained access to the vast pool of kundalini and prana shakti. The sum of these techniques and experiences emerged as the Shiva Sutra.
The Shiva Sutra is a revealed scripture, a priceless gift from Sage Durvasam, who is one of the great luminaries of the Sri Vidya tradition. To date, commentators and scholars have focused on only the philosophical and metaphysical dimensions of the Shiva Sutra, but it is only by studying this text in conjunction with scriptures such as the Yoga Sutra and Saundaryalahari that we begin to comprehend the true spirit of this powerful text.
