The whole creation and every being conditioned. So, there is no realization of the SOUL, the Absolute Truth. One has to achieve complete deconditioning to realize the SOUL

On Peace:

अष्टावक्र उवाच –
यस्य बोधोदये तावत्-स्वप्नवद् भवति भ्रमः।
तस्मै सुखैकरूपाय  नमः शान्ताय तेजसे॥१८- १॥

Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 18 Verse 1

We bow to THAT, which is Bliss by its own nature, calmness, and illumination. When its knowledge starts rising, all delusions become unreal like a dream.

Special Instruction:

अष्टावक्र उवाच 
– आचक्ष्व शृणु वा तात  नानाशास्त्राण्यनेकशः।
तथापि न तव स्वास्थ्यं  सर्वविस्मरणाद् ऋते॥१६- १॥


Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 16 Verse 1

O’ My Father, you often discuss various scriptures. You can also frequently listen to them. But, you can never be established in the SOUL until and unless you forget all. The whole creation and every being conditioned. So, there is no realization of the SOUL, the Absolute Truth. One has to achieve complete deconditioning to realize the SOUL

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

With Love and Best Wishes,

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.
