The Self Realized person is known as the Great Soul Person. He is beyond the influence of Mother Nature, the Creation of Dualities and beyond the 3 Gunas, i.e. Sattwa, Rajah, Tamah.

न निन्दति न च स्तौति  न हृष्यति न कुप्यति।
न ददाति न गृण्हाति  मुक्तः सर्वत्र नीरसः॥१७- १३॥

na nindati na ch stouti na hrusyati na kupyati
na dadaati na grunhaati muktah sarbatra neerasah

Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 17 Verse 13

The God Realized person, neither blames, nor slanders, nor praises, neither excited with joy nor is angry. He neither gives nor accepts. Such a person is free from attachments to all objects. A God-realized person becomes one with God. “Brahmavid Brahma Iba Bhabati.” His actions, reactions, speech, thought process, no more like that of any human being. He has realized the truth that “SARVAM KHALU IDAM BRAHMAM.” So, when only one God is present and nothing else exists, there is no duality anymore. Seer, Seen, Subject and Objects; Blamer, Blamed; Giver, Taker are one.

सानुरागां स्त्रियं दृष्ट्वा  मृत्युं वा समुपस्थितं।
अविह्वलमनाः स्वस्थो मुक्त एव महाशयः॥१७- १४॥

saanuraagaang striyam drustwaa mrutyum baa
samupasthitam abihwala manaah swastho

Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 17 Verse 14

The Self Realized Great Soul person remains calm, mentally poised, is never agitated or disturbed, at the sight of a woman full of love, or, imminent death, liberated really is he. The Self Realized person is known as the Great Soul Person. He is beyond the influence of Mother Nature, the Creation of Dualities and beyond the 3 Gunas, i.e. Sattwa, Rajah, Tamah. Unspiritual people can never understand this condition-less State.

एक एव भवांभोधा-वासीदस्ति भविष्यति।
न ते बन्धोऽस्ति मोक्षो वा कृत्यकृत्यः सुखं चर॥१५- १८॥

eka eba bhabaa mbhodhaa baasidasti bhabisyati 
na tey bandhoasti mokhyo baa kruta krutyah sukham chara

Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 15 Verse 18

In the ocean of the Creation, only one was, is and will be. Neither bondage nor liberation waive you. Live contended and happily. 

May God and the Great Masters, Bless, Guide, Protect and Inspire you.

With much love and humbleness,
Paramahansa Atmananda Ji

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.
