Siva Sutras are considered to be a revealed book of the Yoga: supreme identity of the individual self with the Divine. Dr. Jaideva Singh has studied the book with the help of his guru Swami Laksmana Joo, the sole surviving exponent of this system in Kashmir and has provided an English Translation of the Sutras together with the commentary of Ksemaraja. Each Sutra is given in Devanagari as well as in Roman Script. Then the meaning of every word of the Sutra is given in English, followed by a translation of the whole Sutra. This is followed by the Vimarsini Commentary in Sanskrit and its English translation, copious notes on important and technical words and a running exposition of the main ideas of the Sutra. A long introduction, together with an abstract of each Sutra, throws a flood of light on the entire system of Saiva Yoga. A Glossary of technical terms and index are appended for the convenience of the reader.
