Ashtavakra Geeta
  1. World is like an amusement park.
  2. One day we went to lake side and we saw a bird weaving its nest in bulb shape. That bird usually catches firefly and stick them inside into its nest so that it can light up its nest during dark time and young ones can see. They were having two storied inside nest. Who taught these birds? Who engineered them? It’s amazing!
  3. Have you noticed monkeys? They never eat the skin of banana; they will peel it and eat the pulp. They are very curious to open up everything and they will only eat the thing they will like. It is amazing. The way dog behaves. The way snake behaves. The entire creation is amazing. You are in an amusement park. Just push one button of people and see what happens to them, fumes will come out of their ears, eyes and from everywhere. It’s all wonderful.
  4. When you are not wondering about it then you are caught up in phenomenon.
  5. Instead of getting amazed your question always puts you in sorrow. Every QUESTION can be turned into WONDER. World is an amusement park.
  6. What is िासना? It is Impressions/craving. Consider if you are used to drink coffee in the morning without which you might get headache is called िासना. िासना is limited attractions happening out of 5 senses, and not only just enjoying but it entangled into mind thinking about it all the time. Eating food one time is okay, but thinking 24 hours about food is िासना, same thing about Sex too.
  7. It sucks your potential into some small limitations, and leaves you empty afterwards. It is also called addictions. There is no end to Addictions.
  8. You have had an experience that by eating Ice-cream you had bliss, now; have the bliss without Ice-cream and you will notice you have become empty.
  9. When you go to bed don’t go like “somebody” or “I am something”. Go like a “glow of candle”, “a glow of light”, like “I am nothing”.
  10. Whatever you HATE you will become that. Drop all your hates now. A rat hates cat and it born as a cat. A cat hates dog and it born as a dog. This is a place to be in love and in joy. What is there in life, throw all your anger out. Just love. Just love. Just love. Live as though you are nobody. And you will see that bliss that comes out of it won’t be comparable to any other joy.
  11. The “Union of self” is 1000 times the “Joy of relationship/sex”.
  12. Janaka says, doing all these things has made me tired; now I am at rest. I have no interest in doing these things any more. I am not the doer.
  13. In a silence even thought is a weight.
  14. Don’t go on wasting your energy and time in talking, be in silence, thousand words cannot employ and glance a look from your eye and thus thousand looks cannot convey one silence.
  15. Weigh your words before you speak them out, they are pearls of your life, don’t throw them.
  16. You are meditating and somebody drops a plate or suddenly dog starts barking. It is enough to agitate you for another two days.
  17. Janaka says now even “craving for god” has disappeared from my mind. I am now at complete rest.
  18. A true devotee also never bothers whether “god comes or not”. He will say “Let thy will be then”. “I leave it up to you when you want to come do come, but I am ready, I have cleaned my home, I am set, I have made all preparations, you can come this very moment or you can come after thousand years, as per your wish”
  19. Janaka is now opening up petal by petal. He says: I am totally at rest; I am not even in search of enlightenment now.

Ashtavakra Geeta
  1. Life begins when we step out of the mind.
  2. How do we step out of the small mind? Through SAMADHI we can step out of the small mind. Samadhi in the form of meditation, singing, dancing, intoxicated devotion and through 100% effort in any activity. All these are different flavors of Samadhi and all these flavors are present in our very nature.
  3. Do not think that ripple should not ever take place in mind, also do not think that enlighten body can never become sick. I tell you it is not true. Body also follows certain physical laws. Body can also be sick, there is a possibility of it.
  4. If the children are unhappy can parents be happy? Similarly when someone in group is not happy it affects the big mind to which we call Consciousness/God. This happens because all small minds of ours reside in ONE BIG MIND (or Consciousness/GOD).
  5. So the best form of worship is to be happy or to be grateful.
  6. In spite of your intention to be happy, if you are not happy then what can be the solution ? Ashtavakra says Instead of encouraging sadness; you dance, sing, meditate, dissolve.
  7. One day or other you will have to get back to HOME which is your abode. Thus cross the LIFE LIKE OCEAN through KNOWLEDGE OF BOAT and reach other side which is your real home, Ashtavakra says.
  8. Disturbance in mind is sum of total of anything in the world. When somebody is under pain if an enlighten person passes through or not passes through he can feel pain of all of them. He is more sensitive. When Jesus would pass through he would feel pain of each and everyone who would not be happy.
  9. Someone asked Buddha “You are enlighten then why do you sit and meditate, you have realized god, you know you are god, then what is need for you to sit and do chanting, singing ?” Buddha smiled and said “I am not doing, it is all happening”.
  10. When you are feeling wonderful and if you are going and ask person “What can i do for you?” will surely do well to others, but it might not do awesome for you. But the day when you feel horrible, hopeless and worst, that day you get out of your room and tell people “What can I do for you ?” that day you would have bring revolution inside you.
  11. The day when you feel bad do more service.
  12. Janaka says “knowing this that is how I am reposing in myself”.

  1. God loves Fun. Nature loves to give you surprises.
  2. You grow much more by unpleasant surprise than pleasant one. Each surprise has big message in it for you to become stronger and go deep inside.
  3. You can draw inference from the past, but you should not judge the past. Be aware of your mistakes but don’t judge yourself thinking that mistake is mine.
  4. When someone else does a mistake and if you do a mistake what is difference you see? Wake up? When a mistake happens, do you see you are part of mistake? When you see yourself as a part of other’s mistake then you have really lived a life.
  5. When you accommodate other’s mistake as yours mistake; you take responsibility to rectify and correct them.
  6. If you don’t consider yourself as a part of other’s mistake then you become separate from them there itself blaming them. Then where is oneness?
  7. When we stop saying “He” and “Me” there comes more belongingness and you become one, then you take one step ahead to rectify what other person needs.
  8. All have good qualities within us, all are like beautiful flowers, when you keep all flowers together you make a nice bookey.
  9. If you consider the mistake as yours; GUILT comes to you and if you consider a mistake as others then ANGER comes to you.
  10. Whatever you want for others, it will happen to you. If you want others to suffer, you will suffer more.
  11. Ask for pardon, “If I have hurt you, pardon me”
  12. Mistakes are nobody’s neither mine nor him.
  13. There is a proverb in Hindi ” एक ही सादे सफ सादे, सफ सादे सफ जाए ” means “If you do one thing and achieve perfection then everything will come to you, but if you do everything at a time, everything will go away from you.”
  14. If you bring perfection in your love, in your service, in your being then everything will follow you, you may be knowing nothing on any topic but all knowledge will come to you. For Example: “You may know nothing about cooking but you may be able to make good recipes which would amaze experience cook too”.
  15. All these abilities in you are just subsidiaries. When source comes they just blossom up in you.
  16. Walk lightly on this planet; you are only here for a little while, wave to them all.
