Ashtavakra Gita Part 4

Ashtavakra says: The self – aware wise man takes the worldly matter sportively, he just cannot be compared to a deluded person taking burdens of the situations.॥1॥

A yogi feels no joy even after attaining a state for which Indra and all other demi-gods yearn for.॥2॥

He who has self-knowledge remains untouched by good and bad even internally, as the sky cannot be contaminated by the presence of smoke in it.॥3॥

Who can prevent a great man from living in the present as per his wish as he knows himself as this whole world.॥4॥

From Brahma down to the grass, in all four categories of living creatures, who else can give up desire and aversion except an enlightened man.॥5॥

It is very rare to know Self as One and Lord of the world, and he who knows this does not fear anyone or anything.॥6॥
