Avadhuta is a Sanskrit term from the Dharmic Tradition arising in and around India referring to a somewhat eccentric type of mystic who is beyond egoic - consciousness, duality and worldly concerns and acts without consideration for standard social etiquette. Such personalities are considered to be free from the consciousness of the ego and to 'roam free like a child' upon the face of the Earth . An avadhuta does not identify with their mind or body or 'names and forms'. Such a person is held to be pure 'consciousness' in human form.
Avadhuta Gita is a Sanatana Dharma text based on the principles of Advaita Vedanta. The singer of the Avadhuta Gita is Dattatreya , an Avadhuta
Chapter One 1. Truly, it is by the grace of God That the knowledge of Unity arises within. Then a man is released at last From the great fear of life and death. 2. All that exists in this world of forms Is nothing but the Self, and the Self alone. How, then, shall the Infinite worship Itself? Shiva is one undivided Whole! 3. The five subtle elements that combine to compose this world Are as illusory as the water in a desert mirage; To whom, then, shall I bow my head? I, myself, am the stainless One! 4. Truly, all this universe is only my Self; It is neither divided nor undivided. How can I even assert that it exists? I can only view it with wonder and awe!
