Those who desire to acquire this eternal bliss and of communicating it to others through their teaching, must give up all sensuous pleasures, more especially those which arise from sex union.

Blessed am I; in freedom am I. I am Transcendental Truth. Space-like, all-bliss am I. Woe to them that give up this knowledge of the wisdom of the Self, which in itself constitutes eternal freedom and joy throughout all worlds, and turn to the realms of limited pleasure and of ignorance. Concentrated bliss, alone and secondless, is Reality and that is the Avadhut.

Avadhuta Gita with English Translation

The text has been influential on the Nath tradition of Hinduism, avadhooota Rigopoulos, and its teachings form a foundation of their Sama-rasya doctrine:. Having given giat all activity of the mind, he is in his normal state of indescribable bliss. He may avdhoota the rituals or leave them. Abhayananda states, “The actual date of authorship of the Avadhut Gita is unknown, but, judging by its terminology and style, it appears to have been written, not in the millennia prior to the Current Era, as legend would have it, but sometime around the 9th or 10th centuries of our Current Era.


Shiva is the soul within I am thus the pure Shiva, devoid of all doubt. Do not hold the immature, the credulous, the foolish, the slow, the layman and the fallen to have nothing good in them.

T he world of form and the formless Void: Where the one Reality alone is, how can it be said that “this world is illusory” or “this world is not illusory”, “this is a shadow” or “this is not a shadow”? I know neither joy nor pain; whom can they touch?
