Ashtavakra Gita: Joy of Self-Realization (Text 2.16, 2.17)

ASHTAVAKRA GITA  : Joy of Self-Realization
                                  
Janaka  said :

2.16

Definitely, duality (distinction/Looking at one and seeing manyis the cause of all misery.
The only cure is to realize
what is seen is not there.
I am One-aware, blissful, immaculate. ॥16॥

द्वैतमूलमहो दुःखं नान्य-
त्तस्याऽस्ति भेषजं।
दृश्यमेतन् मृषा सर्वं
एकोऽहं चिद्रसोमलः॥ २-१६॥

द्वैत (भेद)  सभी दुखों का मूल कारण है। इसकी इसके अतिरिक्त कोई और औषधि नहीं है कि यह सब जो दिखाई दे रहा है वह सब असत्य है। मैं एक, चैतन्य और निर्मल हूँ॥१६॥


2.17

I am of the nature of light only, due to ignorance I have imagined other attributes in me. By reasoning thus, I exist eternally and without cause.॥17॥

बोधमात्रोऽहमज्ञानाद्
उपाधिः कल्पितो मया।
एवं विमृशतो नित्यं
निर्विकल्पे स्थितिर्मम॥ २-१७॥

मैं केवल ज्ञान स्वरुप हूँ, अज्ञान से ही मेरे द्वारा स्वयं में अन्य गुण कल्पित किये गए हैं, ऐसा विचार करके मैं सनातन और कारणरहित रूप से स्थित हूँ॥१७॥
