The Heart of Awareness

A Translation of the Ashtavakra Gita

18

This elegant rendition from Thomas Byrom offers the quintessential pointings of Advaita Vedanta through the dialogues of the ancient sage, Ashtavakra, and the wise king, Janaka. From time to time, Moojibaba reads from the Ashtavakra Gita during Satsangs (video below).

Brimming with timeless wisdom, this book has the power to remove delusion and ignorance and illuminate the nature of the Self. The Gita is arranged in short, easy-to-read chapters which all point to the single subject: liberation. Reading these verses is to effortlessly recognise and confirm the pure Awareness we are.

Description

Excerpt from The Heart of Awareness:

“With the pincers of truth I have plucked
From the dark corners of my heart
The thorn of many judgements.

I sit in my own splendor.

Wealth or pleasure,
Duty or discrimination,
Duality or nonduality,
What are they to me?

What is yesterday,
Tomorrow,
Or today?

What is space,
Or eternity?

I sit in my own radiance.”
