Ashtavakra Geeta

  1. Many would have experienced but only few can express it properly, and among those who can express only few can communicate or transfer those experience to others.
  2. Janaka speaks about something where everybody’s words have returned, his expressing were inexpressible breaking through dimension and revealing a mystery.
  3. When “sattvaguna” rises then knowledge dawns, joy dawns, you feel nice. When “rajoguna” rises desire, cravings and restlesness comes. When “tamoguna” rises lethargy, attachment comes, dejection comes. These gunas have their own time, they come and go. No gunas can remain forever.
  4. Mistakes happen in “tamoguna”.
  5. Janaka says I see all gunas rising and setting down, but I am hollow and empty. I am witnessing them like I witness movie.
  6. Money — friends — cravings can pull you down.
  7. Even thinking that “I” go to temple now and then again and again to do something religious act gives you false satisfaction. It is also one type of craving.
  8. Janaka says: Neither money, nor friends, nor cravings can trap my mind. Now I am at rest.
  9. Enough, be fulfill this moment. Settle down. Janaka says: Nothing can move me. What is money? Who are friends? What are cravings? Nothing can shake me. I am the REST.
  10. There are three states in enlightenment:
    i) Being childlike
    ii) Being intoxicated
    iii) Chaotic
  11. Wanting to get liberated from something is even bondage.
  12. Whatever even pleasure and pain if you want to get rid of then YOU ARE CAUGHT UP IN IT, while sleeping even though it is there but you are not with it. Many people are caught up trying to get LIBERATED. If you go and ask Buddhist monks “Why are you sitting whole day in meditation? They will say “I want liberation” and that’s it. They are caught up. If you ask anyone “Did you get Nirvana? He will say “No I WANT Nirvana”. Everybody would be waiting on and on.
  13. WANTING Brahman consciousness is HIGHEST DEGREE OF FOOLISHNESS. Drop it. Relax.
  14. Janaka is not asking questions he is releasing expression. That is the beauty of him.
  15. Finish your questions now there is no end to it. Put exclamation there.
  16. Get into the confidence that you are been taken care wherever you are, don’t even ask for blessings.

Ashtavakra Geeta
  1. There are three types of impurities in body:
    i) म्रा (Impurity at body level)
    ii) विऺेऩा (Impurity at mind level)
    iii) आियना (Impurity at intellect level)
  2. Suppose you have over eaten something and you are feeling uncommon that is called “Malaa”.
  3. Because of conflicts of thoughts in mind, friction arise is called “Vikshepa”
  4. The curtain between your blissful nature and mind is called “Aavarana”
  5. These three impurities calm down you in two conditions, either you are in blissful mood or when you are 100% into some work. Those are the moments when there are no “sankalpa” neither “vikalpa”. Those moments you are so alive. Those are the only moments you are living on this planet, rest of the time you just exist.
  6. See to the context of Universe, where is your small planet earth! And on it where is your small head? And fumes of thoughts coming out of it.
  7. You are made up of stuff called Bliss. Don’t search for bliss here and there. You only have to relax and let go.
  8. In the world two types of knowledge is necessary:
    i) Knowledge that removes the obstacles
    ii) Knowledge through which you know the blissful nature.
  9. You can always gain the knowledge of the only world or relative. You can know the world but you can feel the God. You can know all that is changing but you cannot know God. You can merge in to God but you can never know God. Truth can never be known but it can be felt and experienced. Permanence can never be known but it can only be felt and experienced.
  10. Self is not an object of knowledge, it can only be known when you drop conflicts of mind and relax into depth.
  11. Dispassion is maturity of life. When you have done something over and over again and you get bored of it, dispassion comes automatically.
  12. What is that you expect from all chit-chat that you do with people? You want them to say “you are beautiful, you want approval from them” so what? The one who is praising will also pass away and one who is cursing will also pass away. YOU BE IN YOURSELF.
  13. Have you noticed when child cries for toy, even if he gets toy he continues crying because that momentum of emotion continues. You are still the same, you haven’t grown yet. Only your craving for toy has been converted into somebody else or something.
  14. When you have come to the central core of your existence then joy in life remains, it doesn’t go away.
  15. Having joy or to be happy is not a big thing, but having established in joy and in happiness is life.
  16. This can only happen when you RELAX from everything.
  17. That’s why all moral teachings failed because it does not touch the personality in you.
  18. Your attention is everywhere but never on you, and even if is it on you that it is related to either someone or something, not on yourself.

Ashtavakra Geeta
  1. Many incarnations have happened on this planet, many saints have born, many nice people have come on this planet, many saviors have come. Have the world changed? No. It is still the same. over and over years and years, again and again it is the same thing happening in the world. SO IF YOU HAVE ILLUSION OR IDEA IN YOUR MIND TO CHANGE THE WORLD THEN YOU BETTER DROP IT.
  2. It has never happened before, nor it will happen now, neither will it happen in future.
  3. People say “satyug” was much better than “kalyug”. If you see the atrocities that have happened in “satyuga” you will find “kalyuga” is much more better.
  4. In the world there will be a combination of both good and bad people. Some people engage in good things, some engage in crime, sometimes balance discontinues this way – that way, some more, some less, but EVERYTHING WILL CONTINUE IN THIS WORLD.
  5. OPPOSITE VALUES co-exist in this world and that itself makes the WORLD.
  6. There is no separate things like HEAVEN and HELL it is one. It’s all in your MIND.
  7. If the mind is closed it is HELL and when the mind is reposing in self it is HEAVEN.
  8. You don’t go to change the world, you yourself be a change.
  9. Your freedom is related to bondage. When you say I am free then it means that you were bound before, if you say you are bound that means you were free sometime ago. This is just the temporary sort thing in alternative state.
  10. You are wanting for freedom and feeling towards bondage is all illusion. It is all inside your mind. Because you want to change the world, you want to change the situation, you want to change people but you don’t want to change your MIND!
  11. It is stupid to think you want enlightenment and it’s also stupid to think you are bound.
  12. When I say you cannot change the world that don’t mean YOU DON’T DO ANYTHING. It doesn’t not mean that you do not make people aware and teach them about knowledge. If this would be then Ashtavakra would have not shared this knowledge to King Janaka.
  13. Truth is never something that is straight forward. It’s always circular.
  14. Golden Line: YOU ACT AND BE FULFILL IN EVERY ACTION. WHEN ACTION IS COMPLETE YOU DO NOT DRAG ON IT TO NEXT MOMENT. YOU SELL A PAPAYA TODAY AND THAT’S IT YOU EARNED MONEY TODAY. FINISH. MOVE ON TO NEXT DAY. You will be happy in doing this way. Don’t drag your work towards future, do it right now and complete it now.
  15. Let every action become from the deep core of your heart and be grateful to what you are doing.
  16. What pulls you out of your peace and being is “WANTING TO DO” and “NOT WANTING TO DO”.
  17. A thought of changing the attitude of people in the kingdom would have made Janaka to bother forever which was not possible.
  18. A small piece of sand is enough to shut your vision of your eye. That piece of sand obstructs you to see the view of infinity.
  19. Thus a Master like Ashtavakra knows where to pull the garbage from your mind and make you to see the infinite universe and beyond that.
