Ashtavakra Gita, also known as the Song of Ashtavakra, is a Sanskrit scripture which has two hundred and ninety-eight verses, spread across twenty chapters.

Destiny, Nature of Existence, Nature of Our Soul, Ignorance - the real cause of suffering, Liberation and Self-Realization, Attainment of Self-Realization through Verbal means, and Karma and its types. This book paves the way for attainment of self-realization in an uncompromising manner. It makes us aware of the fundamental unity that we have with the all-pervasive existence.
