Ashtavakra Gita is one of the most important books on the path of knowledge, which is even praised by Shri Ramkrishna Paramahansa and Sri Raman Maharishi alike. Just as the Gita has the dialogue of Sri Krishna and Arjun, so in the same way, Ashtavakra Gita has Ashtavakra as the speaker and king Janaka as the listener. In the Gita, the three ways of enlightenment (action, knowledge, and devotion) are described whereas in Ashtavakra Gita, only the path of knowledge is discussed.
The Ashtavakra Gita elucidates the meaning of the Supreme Reality, Brahman, the self and Atman (Self, soul) and Maya (“an illusion where things appear to be present but are not what they seem”). The Ashtavakra Gita is far more complex in its subject matter, concentrates specifically on the concept of Advaita and only suitable to a person who already has sufficient spiritual knowledge or inclination for deep contemplation.
The Ashtavakra Gita is an ancient spiritual document of great purity and power. Pure, because it is relentlessly one-pointed. Every word is aimed at triggering Self-realization no suggestions for self-improvement, no rules for moral behavior, no practical wisdom for daily life. Powerful, because the mere reading or repeated reading of it can be enough to send a ripe mind reeling into Truth.
