Ashtavakra – 1 – Instruction on Self-Realization

Janaka said:

how is Knowledge to be achieved, detachment acquired,
liberation attained?

Ashtavakra said:

To be free,
shun the experiences of the senses
like poison.
Turn your attention to
forgiveness, sincerity, kindness, simplicity, truth.

You are not earth, water, fire or air. Nor are you empty space. Liberation is to know yourself
as Awareness alone—
the Witness of these.

Abide in Awareness
with no illusion of person.
You will be instantly free and at peace.
