Self-Realization beyond duality- Ashtavakra Gita
I would like to thank one of the readers of this blog, “Seeker;” for sharing this fine scripture from Hindu philosophy which explains interconnectedness with the whole. In other words; the sense that all things are interconnected and not separate, while at the same time all things retain their individuality.
This is something that people lost in logic will not be able to understand.
Attached is the “Ashtavakra Gita.” https://explore7.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/ashtavakra-gita-ebook.pdf
This is not for everyone to understand, but only for those who are ready according to the Drama…in a “numberwise” way.
Now, for those who may think that “this is not BK gyan,” let me break the news that “BK Gyan” is Spiritual knowledge. The “Ashtavakra Gita” is Spiritual knowledge as well.
However, in our spiritual life; some are capable to add and subtract only. Others, can multiply and divide.
Yet others, can do Algebra and Trigonometry and few, can go into derivatives… Similarly will be our understanding.
To each its own.
Your welcome dear soul. BK gyan itself finds its roots in Advait vad i.e. Non-Duality. It talks about a practice to be like a witness to the on goings, while this Ashtawakra Geeta says when one is self-realized all these things automatically. So there is never late or too early, there is always ‘is’ (as you said in one of your blogs or I have read it somewhere). Will be waiting for your further churning on this. 🙂
The interesting thing is that Baba in Sakar Murlis speaks about duality as 2 separate things: Day and Night.
Many souls will see that as “opposite of what Baba says,” when in fact, the understanding of non-duality is something that we could understand when we churn gyan with certain depth.
Baba taught us to distinguish something “good ” and something “bad” as a way to discern in the beginning of our spiritual path. However, that is not the end of it. As a matter of fact, it is only through avyakt murlis where we could see that the teaching of being a “witness” is taught, and we cannot become a witness if we are still caught up in duality.
This is why, Gyan is deep; but if we just see gyan from the child, Sakar Murli style; we will learn to distinguish things, but we will not see their unity. Day comes form Night and Night from Day.
