Bhoothanatha Geetha of Sabarimala Ayyappan (Manikantan) - An Ancient Scripture on Advaita Vedanta

Recommended Posts

Bhoothanatha Geetha of Sabarimala Ayyappan is a text similar to Bhagavad Gita which has 132 slokas and 8 chapters. It is a conversation between Manikantan, the prince and Rajasekaran, the king of Pandalam in which Manikantan explains the secrets of Advaita Vedanta and the ways to attain Jeevan Mukti to Rajasekeran.
This text is not well known as much as the other Gitas, like Bhagavad Gita, Ashtavakra Gita, Avadhuta Gita etc. But the text beautifully summarizes the essence of spiritual wisdom in simple Sanskrit.
In the following video, I have given a short introduction, explained the meaning of an important sloka in the text and also explained some other interesting details about the text:
