He who insists to be free and liberated, is indeed liberated – Ashtavakra



I am immaculate and pure consciousness. With this conviction, like the fire that burns away the forest of ignorance, remain griefless and be happy.

This world of plurality is merely a superimposition on this infinite, blissful Self, like the snake on the rope. That eternal experience of being, Thou Art! Knowing thus, be happy.

He who insists to be free and liberated, is indeed liberated. He who insists to be in bondage is bound. This popular belief in the world is true indeed, as we think, so we are!

The Self is witness, all-pervading, infinite, the one – ever free, consciousness, without any activity, unattached, desireless, at peace. However, out of delusion, appears to be a miserable one.
– Ashtavakra
