Essential nature of bondage is desire and its elimination is liberation - Ashtavakra

Whether feted or tormented, the wise man is always aware of his supreme self-nature and is neither pleased nor disappointed. The great souled person sees even his own body in action as if it were someone else’s, so how should he be disturbed by praise or blame?

The essential nature of bondage is nothing other than desire, and its elimination is known as liberation. It is simply by not being attached to changing things that the everlasting joy of attainment is reached.
Just as waves, foam and bubbles are not different from water, so all this which has emanated from oneself, is no other than oneself. In the same way that cloth is found to be just thread when analysed, so when all this is analysed it is found to be no other than oneself. Just as the sugar produced from the juice of the sugarcane is permeated with the same taste, so all this, produced out of me, is completely permeated with me. Ashtavakra Samhita
