The Yoga-Vasishtha is a popular text on Advaita Vedanta, Puranic in form and philosophical in content. It is also known by other names like Arsa Ramayana, Jnana Vasistha, Maha

Ramayana, Vasistha Ramayana and Vasistha and is ascribed to sage Valmiki himself. It is in the form of replies given by Vasistha to Sri Rama’s queries regarding philosophical problems of life and death, and human suffering, and treats the essentials of Advaita Vedanta. It seems to advocate the dristisristi-vada which holds that the world exists only so long as it is perceived – a concept also found in modern science as in books like The Holographic Universe: The Revolutionary Theory of Reality and Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe.
