S2 EP23 Seegla Vistar Brecher | What does the Avadhoot Gita reveal about the state of Bliss?

a Curious Yogi

“Life as the unfoldment of bliss through the journey of self enquiry – this was the only thing that made sense to me.” 

So Today’s brilliant conversation is a peek into the lesser-known and very profound Avadhoot Gita with a very special yogi, author, musician and teacher, Seegla Vistar Brecher. The Avadhoot Gita of Dattatraya: Song of the Unborn is a deep, meditative exploration of a 9th-century Advaita Vedanta text. Vistar offers her  unique vision and interpretation of the Avadhoot and reveals the essence behind our collective, universal journey.

We touch on so much! Vistar reads and shares from her own translation of the Sanskrit text and pulls inspiration from Swami Shyam’s commentary, but the message is clear – IT’S ALL BLISS.

Here are some of the highlight moments: 

➖13:50 Vistars sadhana: how do you live the freedom you know exists? 

➖18:38 Advadhoot describes all pairs of opposites of the human condition and transcends them 

➖26:41 Reading Chapter 6 verse 3: The mind as blissful

➖36:24 The essence of the practice is when you know there is no separation between you and the world 

➖46:26 The choice of the yogi is to walk through the portal  

➖56:13 Reading Chapter 7 verse 9: The yogi is both free from yog and lack of yoga

➖1:02:31 Reading Chapter 7 verse 4: Where does the unease come from? 

You can connect with Vistar at and find her music HERE 

And I highly recommend grabbing your own copy of The Avadhoot Gita of Dattatraya: Song of the Unborn HERE

Vistar gives us a glimpse into the bliss state possible and the peace that is always available as a spiritual aspirant. She finishes the talk today by letting us know that the greatest practice of a yogi is to watch

Ah, so refreshing, illuminating, inspiring and spacey – this is one of my favourite episodes yet.

About Bobbi

I'm Bobbi, a very curious yogi! I’m also into exploring nature all around the world, creating epic vegan feasts, and apart from being on my yoga mat, I’m happiest when I’m disco dancing my way back to the 70’s!

A Curious Yogi 

I’m really excited that you’ve made it here! So, what’s my mission? It’s to support you in uncovering your highest Self and living an expanded everyday life. It’s my mission because I spent 14 years as a lost, addicted, and depressed yogi. And, it wasn’t until I began to put tender, love and care into my daily personal practice, sadhana, that I began to unfold that state of bliss, which is Yog. 

I’m here as your guide, and your friend, to help you integrate hath yog, pranaayam, meditation & yogic wisdom into your daily life so you can blossom too. 

Hello, friends! I'm Bobbi.

And I'm a 

curious yogi.
