Janaka Gita

Janaka Gita is a philosophical composition in the form of verse. It is credited to King Janaka. The text consists of 65 verses and is part of the Upashanti Prakarana of Yoga Vasishta.

Legend has it that the text consists of the thoughts that passed through the mind of the philosopher king Janaka on hearing the Siddha Gita sung by certain Siddhas outside his palace. Siddhas are people who had attained perfection of self-realization.
The text explores the futility of running after pleasure.

According to the text, mind is the root cause of all the miseries of mortals and that the remedy lies in the annihilation of the mind.

Bhagavan is attained through single-minded attention – Bhagavad Gita

All sensory enjoyments also bring suffering in their wake; therefore, the wise ones do not indulge in the impermanent. In other words, the fleeting nature of sensory experience always brings a sense of loss in its wake, and therefore suffering follows. (5.22)

As fire is enveloped by smoke, as a mirror by dirt and as a fetus remains enclosed in the womb, so is our true nature shrouded by desire. (3.38)

O son of Pritha, to that yogi of constant concentration and single-minded attention, who remembers Me uninterruptedly and for long, I am easy of attainment. (8.14)
By constantly thinking of sense objects, an attachment to them is developed, which in turn creates desire. From desire anger comes, which creates delusion, and consequently a person forgets oneself. Then one loses discriminative power and destroys oneself. (2.62-3)
– Bhagavad Gita
