Supreme Reality refers to the “infinite, eternal, absolute spirit”.—From the Puranas all classes of Indian people learn from their  very childhood that behind all the diversities of this vast world system there is one Supreme Reality, which is infinite, eternal, absolute spirit; which has no such definite name, form and attribute as we can conceive of, but which is the sole ultimate source, ground and substratum of all names and forms, of all the diverse orders of living and lifeless existence of this boundless universe, of all the wonderful powers, wisdom and qualities which we find manifested in the world of our experience.

The Saura Purana devoted to the worship and glorification of Shiva holds him to be the Supreme Reality, the religion preached by this Purana is Shaivism.
