Hindu Books > Hindu Scriptures > Ashtavakra Gita - The Song Of Ashtavakra > Chapter 18

1 - 5

18.1 One may get all sorts of pleasure by the acquisition of various objects of enjoyment, but one cannot be happy except by the renunciation of everything.

18.2 How can there be happiness, for one who is burnt inside by the blistering sun of the pain of things that need doing, without the rain of the nectar of peace?

18.3 This existence is just imagination. It is nothing in reality, but there is no non-being for natures that know how to distinguish being from non being.

18.4 The realm of one's own self is not far away, and nor can it be achieved by the addition of limitations to its nature. It is unimaginable, effortless, unchanging and spotless.

18.5 By the simple elimination of delusion and the recognition of one's true nature, those whose vision is unclouded live free from sorrow.
