The Avadhut has no ideal,
neither strives after the attainment of an ideal.
Having lost his identity in the Self,
free from the limitations of the illusory world,
free also from the perfections of Yoga,
thus walks the Avadhut.
He argues with no one,
he is not concerned with any object or person.

Free from the snares of expectations and hopes, he has cast off the worn-out garments of purity, righteousness, and all ideals.

His path is free from any such consideration. It can only be said about him that he is purity absolute, and is far, far above the clouds of maya and ignorance.

He has no such thoughts as
“I am not in the body,” or
“I am not the body.”

He has no aversion, attachment or infatuation towards any object or person. Pure as space he walks, immersed in the immaculate bliss of his natural state.

The Avadhut may be compared to immeasurable space.
He is Eternity.
In him is neither purity nor impurity.
There is no variety nor unity in him;
no bondage nor absence of bondage.

Free from separation and union,
free from enjoyment or absence of enjoyment, he moves calm and unhurried through the world.

Having given up all activity of the mind, he is in his normal state of indescribable bliss.
