“Ashtavakra’s words begin after almost everything else has been said. They barely touch the page. They are often on the point of vanishing. They are the first melting of the snow, high in the mountains, a clear stream flowing over smooth and shining pebbles. Theirs is the radiance of the winter sky above Trishul, Kailash, Annapurna. My satguru, Neem Karoli Baba, called the Ashtavakra Gita ‘the purest of scriptures.’ All its beauty is in the transparency, its enraptured and flawless purity.” – Thomas Byrom
