The sutra
Ashtavakra said:
"You are the one observer of all, and in reality always free. Your bondage is this: you see the other -- not yourself -- as the observer.
'I am the doer,' thus has the black serpent of ego bitten you. 'I am not the doer,' drink this nectar of trust and be happy.
'I am the one pure knowing,' thus having burnt the forest of your ignorance with this fire of certainty and being beyond sorrow, be happy.
This imaginary world is projected like a snake on a rope. Knowing this you are bliss, ultimate bliss, thus wander happily. He who considers himself free is free, and he who considers himself bound is bound; because in this world the proverb is true: 'As you think so you are'.
Atma is the witness, all-pervading, perfect, one, free, conscious, free from doing, nonattached, desireless, peaceful. Because of illusion, it looks like the world.
'I am an individually projected life,' drop this illusion and also the feeling of inner and outer, and awaken in the thought that you are the unchanging, conscious, non-dual atma."
