The Self-realized person has realized his oneness with the soul, which is formless, deathless, beyond the qualities of nature, beyond time and space and relativity (Maya).

धर्मार्थकाममोक्षेषु  जीविते मरणे तथा।
कस्याप्युदारचित्तस्य  हेयोपादेयता न हि॥१७- ६॥

dharmārthakāmamokṣeṣu jīvite maraṇe tathā ।
kasyāpyudāracittasya heyopādeyatā na hi ॥ 17-6॥

Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 17 Verse 6

The broad-minded enlightened person has neither attraction for, nor repulsion for Dharma (duties and rituals), Artha (worldly prosperity), Kama (desires and cravings), and Mokshya (liberation). Also neither attraction nor repulsion for life or for death. Such a Spiritual Seeker is rare to be found. A person, who is self-realized, has a different value System than a worldly oriented person. The Self-realized person has realized his oneness with the soul, which is formless, deathless, beyond the qualities of nature, beyond time and space, and relativity (Maya). So the concept of body, mind, intellect, ego, life, death has no meaning for him. He is his own Non-dual Self, SAT, CHIT, ANANDA

अष्टावक्र उवाच –
तदा बन्धो यदा चित्तं किन्चिद् वांछति शोचति।
किंचिन् मुंचति गृण्हाति किंचिद् हृष्यति कुप्यति॥८-१॥

tadā bandho yadā cittaṃ kiñcid vāñchati śocati ।
kiṃcin muṃcati gṛṇhāti kiṃcid dṛṣyati kupyati

Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 8 Verse 1

When the mind craves for or feels sorrowful at anything or rejects or accepts anything, feel joyful or resentful at anything. This state is known as bondage.

तदा मुक्तिर्यदा चित्तं न वांछति न शोचति।
न मुंचति न गृण्हाति न हृष्यति न कुप्यति॥८- २॥

tadā muktiryadā cittaṃ na vāñchati na śocati ।
na muṃcati na gṛṇhāti na hṛṣyati na kupyati

Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 8 Verse 2

When the mind does not crave or desire, nor sorrows, nor repulses, nor accepts, nor feel joyful, nor feels angry or resentful. Such state is known as liberation or Mokshya.

May God bless you with Love, Laughter, Light, Longevity and Life.

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.
