Ashtavakra Gita…The True Knower

Ashtavakra said:

17.18

The sage is not conflicted by
states of stillness and thought.
His mind is empty.
His home is absolute.

17.19

Though he may perform actions,
the man of Knowledge 
does not act.
Desires extinguished, 
free of thoughts of “I” and “mine,”
he knows with absolute certainty  that nothing exists.

17.20

The sage is free.
His empty mind no longer projects delusion, dreaming, dullness.
This state is indescribable.
