Śivasūtra (शिवसूत्र).—Name given to the fourteen small sutras giving the alphabet which Panini took as the basis of his grammar. The Sivasutras have got a well-known explanation in Verse, named नन्दिकेश्वरकारिका (nandikeśvarakārikā) on which there is a commentary of the type of Bhasya by उपमन्यु (upamanyu). The origin of the Sivasutra given by the writer of the Karika is summed up in the stanza -नृत्तावसाने नटराजराजो ननाद ढक्कां नवपञ्चवारम् । उद्धर्तुकामः सनकादि-सिद्धानेतद् विमर्शे शिवसूत्रजालम् ॥ (nṛttāvasāne naṭarājarājo nanāda ḍhakkāṃ navapañcavāram | uddhartukāmaḥ sanakādi-siddhānetad vimarśe śivasūtrajālam ||) Nand. 1.
