शिव सूत्र १: The Shiva Sutras Section 1, Sutra 1

Blue ShivaSutra means thread or string, and sutras are spiritual or sacred texts that thread together ideas and messages in as few words as possible. This is to avoid any ambiguity in their meaning, and yet it makes them so fully meaningful. The Shiva Sutras are a treatise on yoga philosophy on liberation and the Ultimate Reality.

There are 77 Shiva Sutras, broken down into three sections. I will start from the beginning and slowly work my way through them. Section 1 is called Shaambhavopaaya or:

शाम्भव उपाय 

Shaambhava-upaaya 

sacred to or derived from Shiva + means, way, approach, effort, and remedy

Section 1: The way as derived from Shiva

चैतन््यमात्मा ।।१।।

Chaitanyamaatmaa = chaitanya + Aatmaa

The state of being conscious or absolute awareness + Self, Soul, Reality

Sutra 1: Pure Awareness is Reality
