In 1991, in Bangalore, India, Sri Sri gave a series of commentaries on what he has himself described as "the most unique conversation that has taken place on this planet." The Ashtavakra Gita is an Advaita Vedanta scripture documenting a dialogue between the Perfect Master Ashtavakra and King Janaka. The exchange is remarkable in its maturity and scope, ranging from the conditions required for knowledge to be given, the nature of action and inaction, the behaviour of the mind and how it is influenced by the five elements, to the psychology of difficult emotions like fear and doubt. Is it said that listening to Ashtavakra Gita can bring about a shift in the consciousness of the listener. This first set of DVD's contains the first seventeen talks in the series.
