Shiva Samhita

Shiva Samhita (also Siva Samhita) is a Sanskrit text on yoga, written by an unknown author[1]. The text is addressed by the Hindu god Shiva to his consort Parvati (“Shiva Samhita” means “Shiva’s Compendium”). It is one of three major surviving classical treatises on Hatha Yoga, the other two being Gheranda Samhita and Hatha Yoga Pradipika[2]. The Shiva Samhita is considered the most comprehensive and the most democratic treatise on hatha yoga[3].
