Translated by Swami Chetanananda, 136 Pages, Paperback.
Freedom is the song of the soul, and the Avadhuta sang that song throughout his Gita. His philosophy is purely nonrealistic and can be summed up in a few sentences: Brahman is the Supreme Reality. The world is apparent, like water in a mirage. The real nature of the individual soul is divine, but that divinity is covered by ignorance. It is due to ignorance that human beings limit themselves and think that they are men or women, Americans or Africans, healthy or sick, beautiful or ugly, rich or poor, learned or illiterate, happy or unhappy. Actually they are the infinite, eternal, blissful Self. Human beings are hypnotized by maya: one has to dehypnotize oneself in order to be free.
