Kashmir Shaivism also called Trika is a form of Hindu religion that believes in one God ParamaShiva, who creates the universe within Himself out of his own pure cosmic conscious Being. ParamaShiva literally means "Supreme Auspiciousness". He is considered to be essentially pure infinite featureless consciousness (called Shiva). But this Shiva aspect has an active creative side called Shakti. It is this ever-active Shakti that creates, operates, and destroys endless universes.
