Track Name: Immortal am i
Song of Avadhoot Dattatreya by Vistar-Seegla Brecher
Based on the original Sanskrit text

Section One
Immortal am I

Avadhoot Dattatreya speaks .

No division exists in the Self,
Free from division is the Self.

Free from qualities,
Form and formless,
Free from desire is the Self.
No world, no manifestation-
The Self is pure.

O dear heart,
I  am the Self, infinitely free-
Free from division, caste, color,
Free from cause,
Free from thought,
I am bliss, made of the sky.
How shall I praise myself, to myself?

Free from root and rootlessness,
Eternally free am I.
Free from light and dark,
Eternally free am I.
Free from smoke, free from smokelessness,
Eternally free am I.

How shall I speak of this?
Involved ... uninvolved,
With desire ... free from desire,
With essential  purpose ... free from purpose
Am I .

I am the knowledge of  immortality-
Bliss-existence like the sky,
Pure existence like the sky.

How shall I describe Oneness ?
How shall I describe duality?
How shall I describe the world as eternal or transitory?

The Self is not gross nor subtle.
It is without beginning or end,
Neither coming nor going.
In truth, I am the knowledge of immortality,
Bliss-existence like the sky,
Pure existence like the sky.

The hidden knowledge of the Self-
Not I, not I.
The hidden knowledge of the senses-
Not I, not I.
The hidden knowledge of the form-
Not I, not I.

O dear heart, know all the senses are like space.
Know all
Free from bondage,
Free from liberation.
Know the Self pure.

I am the flame that burns all action;
Free from action am I.
I am the flame that burns all pain;
Free from pain am I.
I am the flame that burns the body;
Free from body am I.

I am the flame that burns all sin;
Free from sin am I.
I am the flame that burns virtue;
Free from virtue am I.
I am the flame that burns bondage;
Free from bondage am I.

Free from emotion - not I.
With emotion - not I, not I.
Free from  Yog - not I.
With Yog  - not I, not I.
Free from thought - not I.
With thoughtfulness - not I , not I.

With attachment,
Free from attachment-
No thought have I.
With sorrow,
Free from sorrow-
No thought have I.
With avarice,
Free from avarice-
No thought have I.

I am the knowledge of  immortality-
Bliss- existence like the sky,
Pure existence like the sky.

The creeper of this world shall never touch me.
Contentment and  bondage shall never touch me.
Pain and anguish, roaming in darkness,
Truth born of birth, truth born of death
Shall  never touch me.

Creation of pain, bondage and misery,
O doubtful mind- not I , not I !
Ego, intellect, mind - not I.
Wavering and unwavering, dream and wakefulness,
Good and  evil- not I.
No essence, no movement, no time
Am I ... am I .

How shall I say?How shall I know?
The Self Brahm  is unknown,
Free from division, free from union,
Neither within nor without-
Supreme  Reality am I.

I am the knowledge of immortality-
Bliss - existence like the sky,
Pure existence like the sky.
Track Name: Free am i
Free am I

I am the Self- the essence Self am I.
No attachment, no hatred will touch me .
Free am I , free am I.
Free from anguish, sorrow, and regret,
Waking, dream, deep sleep states-
Not,  not I.
Oh turiya, fourth state-
Not I  , not I.
Long , short, vast, diminished-
Not I .

I am the knowledge of immortality-
Bliss-existence like the sky,
Pure existence like the sky.

No mother, father, nor child have I.
Unborn, undying-
No mind have I ... have I.
No restlessness nor stability in me,
I am the knowledge of immortality-
Bliss-existence like the sky,
Pure existence like the sky,
Like the sky.

Pure, purest am I.
Oh Infinite One,
Beyond thought, destruction, division am I.
How shall I speak? How shall I say?
Not this, not this,
Not this, not this.


Free from karm, I act
Free from body, blessed am I.
No truth, no lie, no time-
I am time.

I am the knowledge of immortality-
Bliss-existence like the sky,
Pure existence like the sky.

I have no Lord-no Lord have I.
I have no mind-no mind have I.
I know Oneness-Oneness am I.
I know Oneness- Oneness am I.

I am the knowledge  of immortality-
Bliss-existence like the sky,
Pure  existence like the sky.

How shall I say?
How shall I know?
This world, this truth, this temple.
This doubt, this truth-
No condemnation have I .

Free from life,lifelessness,
Free from seed, seedlessness,
 Free from liberation , free from bondage,
Free am I ,Free am I, Free am I.

I see Brahm, I see Brahm,
Free from glory, world, illusion, destruction.
I know Brahm- Brahm am I.
I know Brahm -Brahm am I.
I know Brahm - Brahm am I.
Track Name: Why do you weep
Why do you weep?

Avadhoot Dattareya  speaks to his mind, to his heart.

How shall I describe you?
You are not your name nor your form,
No difference, no sameness.
O shameless mind,
Why worry? Why weep?

O dear heart,
No weakness, sorrow or death
Can ever touch you.
You are not body,
You sure not bodyless.
Age,  mind and senses
Are not you.
Desire, greed and attachment
Are not you.
For whom do you weep?
You are the knowledge of immortality-
Bliss - existence like the sky,
Pure existence like the sky.

O dear mind,
Your attachment, detachment and desire
Are non -existent.
In your heart
There is no meditator, meditation or bliss,
No time, no place.
There is only the knowledge of immortality.

That which is complete
I have spoken.
The essence is not yours nor mine,
Not Guru nor disciple.
The truth is free.
The truth is the knowledge of immortality.

Formed of the sky am I.
How can I know the ultimate truth of pure bliss and knowledge?
How can I know pain and ignorance?
Formed of the sky am I .

How can I know fire, wind, earth, water and stillness?
The infinite sky, the knowledge of One, am I.

Void, no void,
Pure, impure,
Form,formless-
Not I ... not I !
One essence am I,
Pure am I .

Renounce, renounce
The poison of this world.
Renounce, renounce
The poison of renunciation.
Whatever remains is the Self,
Immortal, pure,
Eternally free,
Eternally free,
Eternally free,
