An Indian Civilizational Perspective

He is Free

Here is Ashtavakra Gita on what “freedom” is:

The world no longer holds him.
He has gone beyond
The bounds of human nature.

Without compassion
Or the wish to harm,
Without pride or humility.

Nothing disturbs him.
Nothing surprises him.

Because he is free,
He neither craves nor disdains
The things of the world.

He takes them as they come.

His mind is always detached.

-Ashtavakra Gita 17:16-17
