Sri Adinath is the primordial guru of yoga. Shiva Adinath is considered to be the primordial Guru, who is Jyoti-Svarupa (a form of transcendental light). He is beyond any form, commonly associated with emptiness, vast and infinite light (Prakasha). He is Chit-shakti (infinite consciousness). Adinath is the source of all knowledge of yoga and tantra.
Sri Adinath is the manifestion of Shiva. Shiva inherits his own form and power through Shakti, dynamic creative force. Without His Shakti He is like an abandoned lifeless body. The Guru is considered to be a manifestation of Shiva, therefore, he is perceived as the source of Supreme Consciousness in the Natha Tradition. Only the Guru who possesses Shakti can be conceived as an authentic Guru and Siddha. The Guru is the embodiment of Power (Shakti) and Supreme Consciousness (Shiva).
