The Yoga Vasishta of Valmiki is considered the most authoritative exposition of non-dualist (Advaita) philosophy, the spiritual realization that all is one. Written down in the 11th to 14th Centuries AD, the work dates back thousands of years and is attributed to the ancient Sage Valmiki.
Yoga Vasishta is among the rare scriptures that accurately reflects the teaching of a Self-realized yogi. It is the story of Prince Rama, the incarnation of god, who has become disillusioned with everything the world has to offer. Over twenty-two days, Sage Vasishta answers Rama's questions about the nature of reality, illustrating with fascinating stories, until Rama attains samadhi (enlightenment) and Self realization.
