- (Translated as in The Mahageeta, Vol 1 on CD-ROM)
- The sutra
- Ashtavakra said:
- "O son, long have you been caught in the noose of body-consciousness. Cut this noose with the sword of knowing 'I am awareness' and be happy. That which is born, remains, increases, changes, deteriorates and perishes: you are not that. You are alone, void of action, self-illuminated and innocent. Your bondage is this: that you practice samadhi.
- This universe is permeated by you, it is strung on the thread of you. In reality you are pure consciousness by nature, do not become small-minded. You are unconcerned, unchanging, void of form, of cool disposition, fathomless intelligence, unperturbed. Thus have faith only in consciousness.
- Know that which has form is false, and know the formless as unchangeable and everlasting. From this teaching of the truth it is not possible to be born in the world again. Just as a mirror is the same inside and outside the image reflected in it, god is the same inside and outside this body. Just as the one all-pervading sky is the same inside and outside a pot, the eternal everlasting brahma is the same in all things."
