Ashtavakra Geeta

  1. You have come alone and you will depart all alone. In the meanwhile 50-60 years you play your role on this earth.
  2. During departure (death) what goes with you is your mind including all anguish, desires and problems. It remains with you forever, it takes all garbage with you called िासना (or smell).
  3. Ashtavakra says: when you see you mind hollow and empty devoid of all cravings and aversion then where is Re-Birth for you!
  4. Then you take birth by your own will called INCARNATION. You are not bound by your Karma. Then you do not undergo all these sufferings or re-birth.
  5. If you know you are hollow and empty then you do not come back (reborn) to suffer but to lift other sufferers. Not to enjoy, but to give enjoyment to others.
  6. If you say “I am the only good, no others can be like me, I do this, I do that, I am supreme”. Or If you say “I am bad, I am hopeless, I am useless, I cannot do this, I cannot do that” both concepts hold you back and does not let you to go back to your nature.
  7. Drop all your concepts of mind. Everything is changing and everybody’s mind is flowing and changing every second. Then how can you label others? If you are still labeling everyone or even to yourself then you are stuck.
  8. All knowledge is already there at the depth of mind and what stops you to go at the core center of your base is your own predefined compartment of concepts in your mind.
  9. How can you be content and having desire at the same time? Wants and Desires arise when you are not happy.
  10. Want is always hanging on to “I”. But when “I” dissolves you come into joyful and blissful state.
  11. Everyone is happiness but everyone is not happy.
  12. Enlightment means “One is happiness and he is happy”, Unenlightment means “one is happiness and he is not happy”
  13. Beauty is not in rocks, scenery, mountains. Beauty is inside you.
  14. There is nothing like worldly people or unworldly people. By your ignorance you see the WORLD. By your knowledge you see the DIVINE.
  15. If you are on this world then you are worldly person.
  16. You are part of divinity, why are you going like beggars everywhere. “I want this, I want that, I want blessings, I want happiness”!
  17. Master wakes you up to that level where he says “I am you and you are Me, Where are you?” Wake up.
  18. No question of “I am bigger than you” neither “I am less than you”. It’s all about “I am you”.
  19. Don’t go to saints like beggars to give me this, that. If you want to ask something, ask for highest knowledge; ask for something which is highest, such wealth of knowledge that can go away with you even if you die.

Ashtavakra Gita.

|| Om Shanti Om Shanti Om Shanti ||

 

Ashtavakra Geeta

 

  1. This very consciousness/mind has passed through many bodies to be able to be in this body as it is now. This consciousness is very old and ancient. This life in you is not new. We say new life has come into home no its not, it’s the old life that has come into new body.
  2. The body has taken 9 months to form organ, around 19+ years to build physical and mental maturity and 84 lifetimes for the mind to become firm. Mind has taken much longer time than all.
  3. The older it becomes the more valuable it is.
  4. Just wake up and look into it, it has huge amount of past experience and wealth in it. It is sum total of the whole creation. Not just your experiences of one life times or one dealings or one happening. But all the happening in the world, all the events and all experiences are all present in this very mind.
  5. When there is no “shraddha/trust”, feverishness and entanglements come into you.
  6. Ashtavakra says: Again and again you will have to trust and believe the knowledge. Believe in the world, Yoga is the science of believing in the world.
  7. Yoga does not speak about GOD or DIVINITY, it only says about PURIFICATION, it has completely materialistic attitude. If you are non-believer in divinity, you would at least believe in refinement. Refinement to yourself to the core is called YOGA.
  8. Believe in Yoga, you will be complete. You have to believe in laws of nature else you cannot move one step ahead, or you have to believe in yourself, that is called awareness or self-inquiry.
  9. When consciousness is refined love blossoms up. With love, Yoga happens naturally. When your heart opens up you see divinity everywhere.
  10. ” संिामात्भा विनाश्मानत “. If someone is very doubtful then they have neither inner joy nor the outer joy. Doubt is like diseases.
  11. When you don’t have trust in you in the love that you have been given by the divine or by the society then you get cravings and attachments, you get entanglement. Your entanglement is a doubt to whom you are entangled. You doubt that either they don’t love you or you don’t have enough love towards them. That’s where entanglement begins, and then you want more and more and more. You are not reposing in yourself. This is where the love curdles itself.
  12. Again and again you have gone through all these things lifetimes. Atleast now Wake-up, Shake-up.
  13. If at all you are looking for something, look for divine.
  14. ” ऻान-स्िरूऩो बगिान “. You are divine in the form of knowledge.
  15. If one is not qualified, Ashtavakra knowledge means nothing to him. We have seen many ignorant to whom ashtavakra means nothing. False perception about god is already present in their mind. They wait for god saying “One day I will meet god”. You can’t win such people.
  16. Sufi saint Mansoor-Al-Hallaj was chopped into pieces because he said “He was God”. People couldn’t understand his love for divine and chopped him, same happened with Jesus. Ignorant people wait for messiah to come. They think god will come down one day from sky to grant them boon. Forget about it. Wake up and see, you are into ocean called god, you are resting in god. Such false perceptions people have made in their mind that they have already forgot that divine is present everywhere. They have forgotten that they themselves are God.
  17. There is no difference “I am you” and “You are me”.
  18. ” प्रकृनत ऩयाहा ” Master gives a blow from this side and from other side too, so there is no way to escape but to be what you be.
  19. You are beyond “Prakriti and Nature”. You are beyond these body, you are beyond all these vatta, pitta and kapha.
  20. Zen masters go on purifying themselves, doing yoga for their whole lifetime thinking “I am impure, I am impure”. How long can you go on doing that? People take 20 years of sadhana. All day refinement, and if one day something wrong happens all jealousy, anger comes out and all their sadhana goes useless.
  21. By reading Ashtavakra one cannot be scholar. Many scholars have read Ashtavakra and they could not make head or tail out of it and left away in between. There has to be “Shraddha” and qualification for such highest peak of knowledge. The words of Ashtavakra penetrates in Janaka in no time.
  22. If you are awake then observe, no event can destroy joy in you. When Master says you are invincible, it appears to be very confusing. But from the point where he is saying everything is invincible even consciousness is invincible too.
  23. All these come and go, Wake up and Shake up. You will see there is no god and no where you or everything is god and everything is you.
  24. Establish in mind, which is space. Establish in mind.

Ashtavakra Geeta

  1. In higher consciousness “knowledge” and “ignorance” has equal position.
  2. A beginner would crave for knowledge and reject the ignorance, for ex: when you are playing a game the knowledge of the result of the game reduces very charm in the game. If you know you are going to lose it you won’t play or if you know you are going to win then there would be no joy in it. So it is best not to know the result while playing the game.
  3. Ashtavakra says: Neither I accept nor I reject. I am abiding in myself.
  4. If you say I am accepting then it means previously it was “not acceptable” and you made an effort in accepting it. Now, which was not previously accepted; in future it could be rejected too.
  5. If you say I have renounced it or rejected it, then it means that you have accepted something in past and hence you are rejecting it.
  6. ACCEPTING an action is as ignorant as REJECTING an action.
  7. However the event is pleasant or unpleasant you cannot hold on to it, they move away like clouds in sky.
  8. Whom we think is very fortunate in this world? Do you think those who are rich are fortunate? I tell you they would be living more in fear thinking “does the opposite person loves to me or to my wallet”? People who are poor think “Wealthy people are fortunate”. Wealthy people think “people who are Healthy they are more fortunate”, People who are healthy think “people who have ability are more fortunate”. People who are not good looking think “people who are good looking are more fortunate”. This is an illusion, like an illusion of water in desert.
  9. In real people who are joyful from the very core of heart, people who live the state of NOBODY. NOBODY is running, NOBODY is talking, NOBODY is eating, and NOBODY is listening. They are fortunate. One does not have to acquire this but by nature it has come to them they are fortunate.
  10. People who are grateful are fortunate.
  11. Brahmanhood is nothing to be acquired or achieved; it’s your very nature.
  12. If someone is trying to rise to achieve Brahman consciousness is fool. But one who knows that enlightenment is his very nature is fortunate.
  13. People live in limited spheres of “likes and dislikes” – “love and hate”, but only a few brave one can know that they are beyond all these small things. They are much deeper like ocean.
  14. In ocean there are so many things like oil, fishes, salt, pearl, and sand. Similarly there are many things in life like happiness, unhappiness, likes dislikes. It’s up to you to choose either pearl or salt from ocean in life.
  15. Don’t hold anyone else responsible, this is very SNEAKY. It’s a very first step to take.
  16. Today think of all those things that you could be GRATEFUL for. You are born on this planet BE GRATEFUL FOR THIS. You could have born somewhere in Ethiopia, Bangladesh, you don’t know in the middle of the night you could be washed by river anytime or killed by someone BE GRATEFUL FOR THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN. Out of infinite number of species, we are born as a human being BE GRATEFUL FOR THIS. If you would have born as a chicken or crabs, somebody would have fried you in oil and eat you putting spices on you BE GRATEFUL FOR THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN. Suppose you would have born as a lobster residing in restaurant, someone comes to restaurant and says GOOD CRAB and that’s it FINISH. Crab vague its tails for few minutes and he dies BE GRATEFUL FOR THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN.
  17. We have got this human life, lots of freedom, ability to know, understand, communicate, and comprehend BE GRATEFUL FOR THIS. A wise intelligent man and women thinks this way. Be grateful for what we have been bestowed with.
  18. Grab every opportunity to be grateful in life, and then you will see you will stop grumbling and all misery and fear will stop in life.
