The Svāyambhuva-Sūtra-Saṃgraha belongs to the Śaiva Siddhānta stream and is a portion of the thirteenth Mūla Āgma dealing with Vidyāpāda. The chapters deal with four principal concerns of the Śaiva Siddhānta, namely the nature of the bound soul (Paśu); the bondage (Paśu); God's power of grace ( anugraha Śakti); and the path of liberation ( adhvan). From these goals the text moves on to describe the methodologies of attaining the final goal through the elaborate rite of dīkṣā.
