This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The Reality Sutras is a handbook of teachings about the nature of the self and reality from the perspective of Trika Shaivism. Trika Shaivism, also known as Shaiva Tantra and Kashmir Shaivism, is a direct realization tradition from Northwest India. It shares with Dzogchen, Daoism, and Chan Buddhism an emphasis on direct, embodied experience and on uncontrived naturalness as the fruit of spiritual practice.
Shambhavi Sarasvati offers students of direct realization spiritual traditions a traditionally structured handbook with short, sutra-style teachings followed by commentary. The sutras are intended to inform, to guide, and to serve as a source of contemplative material for practitioners.
