The Avadhuta Gita is a majestically lofty masterpiece of an Advaitic Sanskrit song… as ancient as it is lyrically eloquent, as profound as it is elevating, as undeniably compelling as it is sublime!
This bold, audacious Gita is a blissful expression of Sage Dattatreya's direct experience of Advaitic (non-dualistic) self-realization, i.e. recognition of the Self (Atman) as God (Brahman). The sage calls himself an Avadhuta – one who has seen the truth of the Self-as-Brahman, as a consequence of which, the world has fallen away from him. He is alive in this world but free of all its bondage! He lives and laughs in bliss! He is Brahman – the ever-eternal, unchanging, ever-blissful, abundant, supreme Reality!
I hope you enjoy immersing yourself into this beautiful song, which is so powerful that even a few lines are enough to give you a taste of the nectar of life lived as Brahman! Read the rest at your own risk – there is no coming back from the Avadhuta’s path of freedom and bliss!
