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.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
