Avadhuta Upanishad is one of the 108 Upanishads from the Indian Philosophy. It is appended to the Krishna Yajurveda. The venerable Avadhuta, Dattatreya, explains about the qualities of an Avadhuta (one who is free from all attachments, and outside signs of distinction) to Samkriti who had approached him with this question. He who rests constantly in himself, after crossing the barriers of castes and stages of social position, and has thus risen above varnas and asramas and is in union with God, is said to be an Avadhuta. Avadhuta Upanishad mentions that an Avadhuta, who is totally immersed in the Lord, becomes free from committing all sins, and may or may not wear clothes. For them there is nothing righteous or unrighteous; nothing holy or unholy. Through all-consuming, correct knowledge, the Avadhuta performs Ashvamedha sacrifice within (himself). That is the greatest sacrifice and the greatest Yoga.
