About Book:

One of the purest statements of non-dualistic (Advaita) Vedanta was made 3,000 years ago by Dattatreya Avadhuta, who sang it spontaneously after purifying himself in meditation and becoming absorbed in the uninterrupted bliss of Brahman.

The Chetanananda translation has the text in Sanskrit (Devanagari text) and English translation. Many find this translation very readable, making a difficult concept accessible.


The Avadhuta Gita is an independent treatise on Advaita and explains that doctrine in the most uncompromising terms . . . It is very difficult to translate some of the passages, and our gratitude goes to Swami Chetanananda for having given us a fine and lucid translation with proper notes. This is a book not only for spiritual aspirants but for everyone who desires to know the essence of Vedantic doctrines. --Dr. V. Gauri Shanker, Samvit Magazine
