aṣṭāvakra uvāca

na te sago’sti kenāpi ki śuddhastyaktumicchasi
saghātavilaya kurvannevameva laya vraja

Ashtavakra said: You are free from contact with anything whatsoever. Therefore, pure as you are, what do you want to renounce? Accordingly, dissolve away this body complex mix and merge back into your unmixed reality.


udeti bhavato viśva vāridheriva budbuda
iti jñātvaikamātmāna evameva laya vraja

The universe arises out of you, like bubbles rising out of the sea. Knowing all of them as just one self, get merged there, in your own reality.


pratyakamapyavastutvād viśva nāstyamale tvayi
rajjusarpa iva vyakta evameva laya vraja

The universe, because it is unreal, being manifested like the snake in the rope, does not exist in you who are pure, even though it is present to the senses.  Therefore get merged  back into what you really are.


samadukhasukha pūra āśānairāśyayo sama
samajīvitamtyu sannevameva laya vraja

Equal in pain and in pleasure, equal in hope and in despair, equal in life and in death, and perfect as you are, may you come to be dissolved
