ASHTAVAKRA GITA/ASHTAVAKRA SAMHITA/SONG OF ASHTAVAKRA is a very ancient Sanskrit text. This reading is being made from the English translation work of John Richards who made this translation freely available for all and I am really grateful to him for his work~ Ashtavakra Gita presents the traditional teachings of Advaita Vedanta. The work was appreciated and quoted by Shri Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda, Ramana Maharshi and Osho etc~ Ashtavakra Gita states that there is no such thing as existence or non existence, right or wrong, or moral or immoral. In the eyes of the Ashtavakra, one's true identity can be found by simply recognizing oneself as Pure Existence and that as individuals we are the Awareness of all things. The Ashtavakra Gita teaches that one is already free once one realises one is free. It advocates non-action, loss of desire and severing of worldly attachments. To free oneself from the cycle of life and death, one should withdraw from all Earthly desires, worries and cares. To continue indulging in Earthly things even after one has realised their true nature is said to be foolish and time wasting. Instead it paints a picture of The Master as someone who continues to keep up their responsibilities in the world, not because they believe they have to or due to any worldy attachments, but simply that it is in their nature to do so. To avoid misinterpretation in this regard teachers traditionally recommend that Ashtavakra Gita be pursued by only those who have already advanced on the spiritual path.
