Bhagavan Nityananda was addressed by his devotees as an avadhuta—one who has renounced worldly attachments, who is established in the Supreme Self, whose state is one of total abandonment in the Lord.
Shri Avadhuta Stotram is derived from the Vedanta Chandavali, a devotional text in the Sanskrit language that was written by the poet-saint Bhole Baba. When Baba Muktananda saw how the verses from Vedanta Chandavali so aptly described the state of his Guru, Bhagavan Nityananda, he adapted several of them into a stotram, a hymn, for recitation in Siddha Yoga Ashrams. To complete the stotram, Baba added the first and last verses.
On this page is a recording of Shri Avadhuta Stotram together with the text and its translation. This stotram is also published in The Nectar of Chanting.
