Powerful Opening Lines Of Books.
In Sanskrit, this is the opening Verse Of The Asta Vakra Gita
“Katham Jnanam Apnauti ?
Katham Mukti Bhavishyati ?
Vairaagyam cha Katham Praptam ?
Etata Bruhimam Prabho ! “
The approximate personal translation is as follows:
” How can you acquire Knowledge on your own ?
How can you aim to become free in the future ?
How can you obtain a state of Renunciation (Detachment) ?
Teach me all this O Lord ! “
These are some of the most powerful Opening Lines of any religious book .
How can I get rid of Ignorance? How can I achieve Enlightenment? And How can I become detached from all (joys and sorrows)?
