Avadhuta Gita of Dattatreya: Dattatreya, Swami Ashokananda: : Books
I do not know Shiva; how can I worship Him? Jul 29, Darshan rated it it was amazing. There is no duality in It. I am beyond the senses, I am knowledge and bliss. Chapters 2 through 7. When the mind is uncontrolled, then the avavhuta, which is the object of affection to the ignorant, also suffers, and when the mind is controlled, then the body also remains in good estate.
When there is eternal all-pervasive Self alone, how can there be matter or spirit therein? By nature pure, taintless is my Self. Birthless, pure, bodiless, equable, imperishable Self you know yourself to be. Showing of 15 reviews. It grasps not, nor is It grasped. The cause and effect that produce conditions do not exist in Self.
Nor is it seen through postures. W hen you know all this universe of forms To be as vacant as the sky, Then you’ll know Brahman; Duality will forever cease to be.
The term Advaita non-dual refers to its idea that the soul true Self, Atman is the same as the highest metaphysical Reality Brahma. I am the only Reality, like absolute space is my nature. This is the Song [Gita] of the great Dattatreya Avadhut.
The Reality underlying them is eternal. I am neither with an essence, nor am I without an essence. No duality can touch the conception of Reality, because It is all-pervasive. Sedusa rated it really liked it Jan 20, All this is ever pervaded by you avadhuts the Self. Contains the Sanskrit devanagari text, transliteration, and English translation. Beloved, why do you cry?
In reality, mind has no independent existence. How then can you say, “I know my Self” or “I know not my Self”? Bahai Buddhism Christianity Hinduism Islam Self realised is the master of creation, Eternal, indestructible, formless, without dimensions, absolutely independent, without pleasure or pain, full of all powers. Even the ancient scriptures cannot speak of Him perfectly. In other words, the difference avdahuta what is Formless and what has Form disappears forever, and it is co-eternal with the vision of the Universe in Atman.
Of the several versions of this great book that I have I must say this is the clearest best translation. See all 15 reviews. Why do you cry? He has dattatrya an ocean of Truth and is ever engaged in the work of mercy. I am not separate from Reality. I alone am, ever free from all taint. More subtle than space itself am I.
He does not identify with his mind or body or “names and forms” and does not recognise a distinction between himself and the world around him. You are not the mind; you’re the supreme Reality. He may walk about naked or be dressed as a prince.
In the first appearance it may appear as some simple philosophical facts but in depth it contradict many other great principles but finally reaches the same ultimate goal. All is my Self. All forms, understand, are only temporary manifestations; The formless Essence eternally exists. The brief introduction with attendant English translation of the Avadhuta Gita by Ashokananda dattattreya is reproduced in Katz.
Of course this is not for a novice but for someone who is well versed in Vedantha but still not sure about the supreme knowledge. When my mind began to meditate on You, it lost all interest in objects.
