Ashtavakra Gita (1961)
The Ashtavakra Gita, less well-known in the West, expresses the highest Teachings of the Upanishads, and embodies the philosophic thought of the Sages Yajnavalkya and Varmadeva. It does not give an exposition of the truth by logical reasoning, but a description of the bliss experienced by an illumined Saint.
Those who have not understood the essence of Vedanta, and are still practising the discipline of self-purification, will probably not fully appreciate this work, but for the advanced student, the spiritual truth is here revealed in a simple uncompromising form.
Each verse is a text for meditation; the whole work has a magic of its own, which elevates and exalts the mind and grants glimpses of the transcendental region.
The particular school of Advaita Vedanta propounded in this Gita, is called Ajatavada, that is the theory that the universe was never created in the Absolute. It is the most metaphysical explanation of the world, Gof and the Absolute.
