Ashtavakra Gita: Joy of Self-Realization (Text 20,21,22)

ASHTAVAKRA GITA : Joy of Self-Realization

                                  
Janaka  said


2.20

The body, heaven and hell, bondage and liberation, and fear, these are all unreal.
Are these my concern?
I, who am pure Awareness?


शरीरं स्वर्गनरकौ
बन्धमोक्षौ भयं तथा।
कल्पनामात्रमेवैतत्
किं मे कार्यं चिदात्मनः॥ २-२०॥

शरीर, स्वर्ग, नरक, बंधन, मोक्ष और भय ये सब कल्पना मात्र ही हैं, 
इनसे मुझ चैतन्य स्वरुप का क्या प्रयोजन है॥२०॥


2.21

Amazingly, I do not see duality in a crowd, 
it also appear desolate. 
Now who is there to have an attachment with.॥21

अहो जनसमूहेऽपि
न द्वैतं पश्यतो मम।
अरण्यमिव संवृत्तं
क्व रतिं करवाण्यहम्॥२-२१॥

आश्चर्य कि मैं लोगों के समूह में भी दूसरे को नहीं देखता हूँ, 
वह भी निर्जन ही प्रतीत होता है। अब मैं किससे मोह करूँ॥२१॥


2.22

I am not the body.
I do not have a body.
I am Awareness, not a person.
My thirst for life bound me
to a seeming of life.

नाहं देहो न मे देहो
जीवो नाहमहं हि चित्।
अयमेव हि मे बन्ध
आसीद्या जीविते स्पृहा॥ २-२२॥
