History and calligraphy of The Avadhuta Gita

The Avadhuta Gita : History

The Avadhuta Gita (date unknown) is a Sanskrit text describing the position of Non-dual (Advaita) Vedanta. It is a work that reads like a repetitive chant, again and again proclaiming the outlook of absolute unity. This text is written from the perspective of an Avadhuta. An Avadhuta is a liberated soul who is completely beyond worldly attachments and cares. He seeks nothing, he renounces nothing; he is not swayed by social convention nor approval. He exists completely in the bliss of his own inner self. This work is customarily attributed to the sage Dattatreya.
