Ashtavakra Gita: Joy of Self-Realization (Text 2.18, 2.19)

ASHTAVAKRA GITA : Joy of Self-Realization   
                                               
Janaka  said :

2.18

For me there is neither bondage nor liberation. 
I am peaceful and without support. 
This world though imagined in me, 
does not exist in me in reality.॥18॥

न मे बन्धोऽस्ति मोक्षो वा
भ्रान्तिः शान्तो निराश्रया।
अहो मयि स्थितं विश्वं
वस्तुतो न मयि स्थितम्॥२-१८॥

न मुझे कोई बंधन है और न कोई मुक्ति का भ्रम। 
मैं शांत और आश्रयरहित हूँ। 
मुझमें स्थित यह विश्व भी वस्तुतः मुझमें स्थित नहीं है॥१८॥
2.19

Definitely this world along with this body is non-existent.
Only pure, conscious self exists. 
What else is there to be imagined now?॥19॥

सशरीरमिदं विश्वं
न किंचिदिति निश्चितं।
शुद्धचिन्मात्र आत्मा च
तत्कस्मिन् कल्पनाधुना॥२-१९।

यह निश्चित है कि इस शरीर सहित यह विश्व अस्तित्वहीन है, 
केवल शुद्ध, चैतन्य आत्मा का ही अस्तित्व है। 
अब इसमें क्या कल्पना की जाये॥१९॥
