Overview

You are pure awareness. The world is an illusion, Nothing more. When you understand this fully, Desire falls away. You find peace. For indeed! There is nothing. (15.17)

The text is an instruction for achieving the self-realization and Oneness. The Ashtavakra Gita is a short treatise ascribed to the great sage Ashtavakra.

Composed between 500-400BC, though some claim it was written later, either in the eighth century by a follower of Shankara, or as late as the fourteenth century during a resurgence of Shankara's teaching, The Ashtavakra Gita is written as a dialogue between King Janaka, the father of Sita, and his guru, Ashtavakra.
