Avadhuta Gita Sayings

When the pot is broken, the space within it is absorbed in the infinite space and becomes undifferentiated. When the mind becomes pure, I do not perceive any difference between the mind and the supreme Being. Sages say that Reality is one only and the same. And through renunciation of attachment, the mind, which is one and many, ceases to exist.
All the scriptures say that the Truth is without attributes, pure,immutable, bodiless, and existing equally everywhere. Know me to be That. There is not the least doubt about it.
Know the Self always to be everywhere, one and unitercepted. I am the meditator and the highest object of meditation. Why do you divide the indivisible?
