ASHTAVAKRA GITA SRI SRI RAVI SHANKAR PDF

Ashtavakra said: He who has realized that change in the form of existence and destruction is in the nature of things, easily finds repose, being unperturbed and free from pain. He who has known for certain that the Lord is the creator of all and that is there is none else here, becomes peaceful with all his inner desires set at rest, and is no longer attached to anything. Realising that misfortune and fortune come in their own time through the effects of past actions, one is ever contented, has all senses under control, and neither desires nor grieves. He who knows for certain that happiness and misery, birth and death are due to the effects of past actions, does not find anything to accomplish, and thus becomes free from care is not attached even though engaged in action.

Ashtavakra said: He who has realized that change in the form of existence and destruction is in the nature of things, easily finds repose, being unperturbed and free from pain. He who has known for certain that the Lord is the creator of all and that is there is none else here, becomes peaceful with all his inner desires set at rest, and is no longer attached to anything.

Realising that misfortune and fortune come in their own time through the effects of past actions, one is ever contented, has all senses under control, and neither desires nor grieves. He who knows for certain that happiness and misery, birth and death are due to the effects of past actions, does not find anything to accomplish, and thus becomes free from care is not attached even though engaged in action. He who has realized that it is thinking that breeds misery in this world, becomes free from it, and is happy, peaceful and everywhere rid of desires.

He who realizes that all this varied and wonderful universe is nothing, becomes desireless and Pure Consciousness, and finds peace as if nothing exists. Janaka said: First of all I became averse to physical activity, then to lengthy speech, and finally to thinking itself.

Which is why I am now established. Having no attachment for sound and other sense objects, and the Self not being an object of perception, my mind is freed from distraction and is one pointed.

Thus therefore do I firmly abide. An effort has to be made for concentration when there is distraction of mind owing to super imposition etc. Seeing this to be the rule, thus do I firmly abide.

By relinquishing the sense of rejection and acceptance, and having neither Joy nor sorrow, thus, oh wise one, I am now established. Life in a community, then going beyond such a state, meditation, control of mental functions — finding that these cause distractions to me, thus I am now established.

Abandoning action is as much the outcome of ignorance as the performance of action. By fully recognising this truth, thus do I firmly abide. Think on the the unthinkable One, one only has recourse to a form of thought. Abandoning such a thought therefore, I am now established. Janaka said : The inner freedom which is born of the consciousness that there is nothing but the Self is reare even for one who wears but a loin cloth. Therefore, giving up renunciation and acceptance, I live happily.

Recognising that nothing whatsoever is really one by the Self, I do whatever presents itself to be done and so I live happily. Yogis, who identify themselves with their bodies, insist upon action or inaction.

But I live as I please in the absence of attachment and rejection. No gain or loss accrues to me by standing, walking or sleeping. So I live happily whether I stand, walk or sleep. I lose nothing by sleeping and gain nothing by effort, so consequently I live as I please, abandoning loss and success. Observing repeatedly the inconstancy of pleasure and pain under different circumstances, I have renounced good and evil and I live happily.
