  Shri Shiva Gita AudioBook (Hindi)

The Śhiva-Gītā is a text of Vedantic Śhaivism that comes to us from the latter portion (uttara kānda) of the Padma Purāna. In the Śhiva-Gītā, the teacher is Lord Śhiva and the disciple is Śrī Rāma, and the narrator is Suta Rishi. Lord Shiva tell Shri Rama the secrets of Bhakti and Jnana Yoga.

The Śhiva-Gītā begins with episode from the Rāmāyana epic, where Rāma is despondent over the loss of Sītā. At this time, Rāma is visited by Sage Agastya, and the sage prescribes to Rāma that he should observe a special vow called the Pāśhupata vrata. By observing this vow Agastya promises that Rama will have a vision of Lord Śhiva, and will receive the Pāśhupata astra (weapon) without which Rāvana cannot be defeated. Rāma performs the vow and at the end of four months receives a divine vision of Śhiva. Śhiva presents Rāma with the Pāśhupata astra, and Rāma in turn asks Lord Śhiva a series of questions. The dialogue between Rāma and Lord Śhiva makes up the bulk of the Śhiva-Gītā.
