Bhagavan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri on Avadhuta

Avadhuts know that birth and death are illusions of the body. They are no more identified with the body than ordinary people are with their garments.
Avadhuts have no sense of "I." They see everything as projections of the Self, viewing all with equal pleasure.
No matter where they wander, they have no sense of duality.
If food is available, they eat-but they do not ask for food.
Those who offer them poison and those who offer them milk are the same. Those who beat them and those who love them are the same.
Avadhuts recognize the universe as father, mother, family. They contain the entire universe and the universe is merged in them. Bhagavan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri(Source: The Sky of the Heart, Sutra 109)
