Description

Publisher's Note

Ashtavakra Gita is a very valuable work containing the highest Advaitic teaching imparted by Sage Ashtavakra to King Janaka, by means of a conversation. Being a ripe soul King Janaka became Self-realised by following the teaching of Ashtavakra.

An edition (with limited circulation) carrying the Kannada transliteration of Ashtavakra Gita along with the English translation of Swamy Nityaswarupananda of Ramakrishna Mission was published by the Mysore. Palace. A copy was presented to Sri Bhagavan by the Maharaja of Mysore in 1932.

The speciality of the copy presented to Sri Bhagavan is that he (Bhagavan) has copied the original Sanskrit text in his own hand in the free space above the Kanada version. Sri Bhagavan ha also written the caption 'Maharaja of Mysore' below the picture of the Maharaja.

This has been carefully preserved at the Ashram Archives.

The Ashtavakra Gita was always commended by Sri Bhagavan for study by seekers. For this reason as well as the weightier one that the book carries the personal touch of Sri Bhagavan a facsimile is brought out as a special edition by the Ashram on this sacred day, the 121st Jayanti of Sri Bhagavan.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
