Ashtavakra Gita : Instruction on self realization (Text 1.3)

ASHTAVAKRA GITA   
               
Instruction on self realization 
                                  
Janaka  said 1.1 Master, how is knowledge to be achieved, detachment acquire, liberation attained? 

जनक उवाच – कथं ज्ञानमवाप्नोति,
कथं मुक्तिर्भविष्यति।
वैराग्य च कथं प्राप्तमेतद
ब्रूहि मम प्रभो॥१-१॥

वयोवृद्ध राजा जनक, बालक अष्टावक्र से पूछते हैं – हे प्रभु, ज्ञान की प्राप्ति कैसे होती है, मुक्ति कैसे प्राप्त होती है, वैराग्य कैसे प्राप्त किया जाता है, ये सब मुझे बताएं॥१॥

              
Ashtavakra said: 1.3

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.

न पृथ्वी न जलं नाग्निर्न
वायुर्द्यौर्न वा भवान्।
एषां साक्षिणमात्मानं
चिद्रूपं विद्धि मुक्तये॥१-३॥

आप न पृथ्वी हैं, न जल, न अग्नि, न वायु अथवा आकाश ही हैं। मुक्ति के लिए इन तत्त्वों के साक्षी, चैतन्यरूप आत्मा को जानिए॥३॥
