Shunyamurti reads: Avadhuta Gita


Shunyamurti reads: Avadhuta Gita


Categories , ,

In this exquisite collection of five morning teachings, Shunyamurti reads from and gives commentary on one of the most beautiful, poetic and important texts of Advaita.


This package includes 5 audio mp3 recordings:

  • Track 1: (24:22)
    • In this opening teaching, Shunyamurti explains what an avadhuta is, and provides commentary on each verse, including themes of: grace, nonduality, transcending the mind, emotional equanimity, and ego transcendence, among others.
  • Track 2: (21:38)
    • Shunyamurti continues commenting on the Avadhuta Gita, commenting on withdrawing consciousness from the sensory realm, not stopping at the Symbolic register (which is a dead-end), the paradox involved in Self-Realization, and the teleological realization that Liberation has already been chosen and you are simply pretending that you are not Liberated.
  • Track 3: (26:28)
    • Reading from two different translations and discusses themes including: God can never be an object of knowledge; claiming/reclaiming your power (not projecting your power outside of yourself or on an other); how the Emptiness is also Fullness; the nonduality of duality and nonduality (including a mention of Achintya Bhedhabheda); the Path of Smoke and the Path of Light; and how to create Sat Yuga.
  • Track 4: (21:22)
    • Commenting on themes such as: going beyond language and the impossibility of reaching the Self through two-valued logic; transcending the categories of time and space; and how the Atman is not reached through any process but is only realized in the here and now.
  • Track 5: (18:19)
    • Shunyamurti concludes his readings from the Avadhuta Gita.

One whose consciousness has merged with Brahman, the Absolute, and thus has been liberated from all desire, fear, attachment, and material frames of reference. Thus, a Brahmachari naturally lives a life of celibacy, simplicity, and inner solitude.


Meditative meetings in which the highest teachings are shared. Shunyamurti also offers guidance during questions and answers to resolve the most difficult and delicate matters of the heart.


Information, energy, or nonlinear change that occurs as the effect of events that take place in the future and alter the past, which is perceived in the present as non-ordinary phenomena, synchronicities, unpredictable emergent properties or other notable explicate arisings. The source of such forces may also lie beyond chronological time, in higher dimensions of the Real.

The process of non-process:

Since awakening is instantaneous, along with the recognition that one was never really in the dream, but enjoying the creation of the dream, it must be understood that making awakening into a process can only be part of the dream, and has nothing to do with Awakening itself.

The Real:

When we speak of the Real, unless otherwise qualified, we mean the Supreme Real. The Supreme Real does not appear. Appearance is not Real. All that appears is empty of true existence. There are no real things. All that is phenomenal is temporary, dependent, and reducible to a wave function of consciousness. The world does not exist independent of consciousness. There is no matter or material world. All is made of consciousness. Pure consciousness is Presence. It is no-thing, non-objective, not in space or time. All that appears in Presence, or to Presence, is an emanation of Presence, but is not different from That. This is one meaning of nonduality.

The Real is also a term used in Lacanian psychoanalysis. What Lacan means by the Real is that aspect of phenomenal appearance which is overwhelming, traumatic, or impossible. We would call that Real One. It is a relative Real, not Absolute. We add that there is a Real Two, which consists of divine love. Love is not an appearance, but it changes appearance, through recognition of its Source, into a divine manifestation, a projection of God’s sublimely beautiful Mind as infinite fractal holographic cosmos. Real Three is the unchanging Absolute, beyond all conception or image.

Dharma and dharma:

When we use the term Dharma (capitalized), we refer to our dedication to living in accord with the timeless principles of impeccable integrity that keep us in harmony with Nature and our Supernatural Source.

When we use the term without capitalization, we refer to our acceptance of the community’s processes, protocols, and chain of command with the “Haji! Spirit” of going the “extra mile” and working overtime when necessary to make the impossible inevitable, as our unconditional act of surrender to Love.
