Echoes of Silence: Avadhut Gita Revisited

Karl Renz (Author) Sanjay Inamdar (Compiler) Sanjay Inamdar (Editor) Manjit Achhra (Editor)

This is a work on the Avadhut Gita (song of the free) of Dattatreya. Incorporating he Sanskrit verses so that they can be independently interpreted by readers, it discusses the unique feature of the ancient work that offers stunningly paradoxical proclamations that strike at the root—the imagination —itself which is found to be an impediment to reality. The volume is organised into seven chapters as the original Avadhut Gita has been arranged, with each verse presented in Sanskrit along with its translation and the author Karl Renz’s understanding of it.

About the author

Karl Renz

Mind loves new concepts for they provide a cosy terra firma - a comfortable landing place. Of late 'Peace' has been one of the famous landing places for spiritual seekers. There are infinite techniques of how to be at peace with oneself... Meditation... celebration... renunciation...

Sure enough, Karl comes around questioning the one who wants to be in peace With compelling insights, the one looking for peace is then seen in a new light... as the source of misery. 

Karl's koan-like expressions are truly mind-bending - the resultant frustration of the mind tripping over its own concepts is a telltale sign of the one trying to understand.

What it all boils down to is this: when the most famous idea of being at peace is challenged - what remains?

Let's just say that the one trying to be peaceful is in for a fine round of walloping!
