Ashtavakra Gita is written as a dialogue between sage Ashtavakra and Janaka, king of the kingdom Mithila. Ashtavakra Gita, is advaitic masterpiece stating the whole truth without duality un-like Bhagawat Gita that was recited much later by Lord Krishna to his charioteer warrior Arjun and which serves varying interpretation for everyone who reads it. Nothing is known about the first author of Ashtavakra Gita, but there are various Sanskrit versions and English translation available with commentary. Human mind - much evolved; yet cannot stop itself from adding new interpretations to existing completeness of things around it. Asthavakra Gita is such a case in text; interpreted from its basic Sanskrit form by scholars and gurus – each one adding one's own pretension as their scholarly interpretation. The truth to be understood is: the more commentary and explanation one tries to give to the text of Ashtavakra Gita, the more it takes the readers away from the essence of Ashtavakra Gita
