Happiness and unhappiness, birth and death, come in their prescribed time, caused by the effects of past actions. Having realized this, the wise spiritual seeker does not think it necessary to struggle.

ईश्वरः सर्वनिर्माता  नेहान्य इति निश्चयी।
अन्तर्गलितसर्वाशः शान्तः क्वापि न सज्जते॥११- २॥

Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 11 Verse 2

God is the innermost Self, the Creator of all, the only presence and there is nothing else and none else is present here. The wise spiritual seeker realizes this, becomes calm and peaceful. All his inner desires and conflicts come to an end. He is no more attached to anything.

आपदः संपदः काले  दैवादेवेति निश्चयी।
तृप्तः स्वस्थेन्द्रियो नित्यं  न वान्छति न शोचति॥११- ३॥

Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 11 Verse 3

Misfortune and good fortune come in their prescribed time, caused by the effects of past actions. The spiritual seeker having realized this, achieves control over the mind and the senses through the daily practice of Kriya Yoga. He no more desires, no more grieves.

सुखदुःखे जन्ममृत्यू  दैवादेवेति निश्चयी।
साध्यादर्शी निरायासः  कुर्वन्नपि न लिप्यते॥११- ४॥


Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 11 Verse 4

Happiness and unhappiness, birth and death, come in their prescribed time, caused by the effects of past actions. Having realized this, the wise spiritual seeker does not think it necessary to struggle. Thus he becomes free from worry and anxiety. Though he is ever busy in action, is never bound by the actions.

May God and Guru Bless, Guide, Protect and Inspire each one of us and the Whole Universe.

Astabakra Samhita

Ashtavakra Samhita or Astavakra Gita is a dialogue between Sage Ashtavakra and King Janaka on the nature of soul, reality, and bondage. It offers a radical version of non-dualistic philosophy. It presents the traditional teachings of Advaita Vedanta with clarity and power very rarely matched.
