Translation and Commentary by Jayaram V

The Four Ways of Final Dissolution


Index


Verse 1: Ashtavakra said, “What do you want to renounce when you are not associated with anything at all? Ending your worldly attachments, in this way you can attain the final dissolution.” Commentary


Verse 2: All this manifest just as the bubbles happen to arise from the ocean. Thus, knowing that the Self is verily one, in this way also you can attain the final dissolution.Commentary

Verse 3: Being unreal, all this that you see does not really exist in you who are pure. Knowing thus that it appears just as a snake appears in the rope, in this way also you can attain final dissolution. Commentary


Verse 4: Equal in pain and pleasure, completely fulfilled, equal in hope and despair, and in life and death, being thus, in this way also you can attain final dissolution. Commentary
