'All about devi devta'...doesn't sound too much like Vairag Shatakam! Perhaps you read something else. This is in sanskrit, and after salutations to Shiv Maharaj, focuses on a set of teachings about the nature of existence and vairag through example and metaphor.

It has been translated into Punjabi by Pandit Narayan Singh (and someone else I forget). It has also been drawn upon for Pandit Gulab Singh Nirmala's 'Bhavrasamrit', an 18th century text I have translated, being published and available soon.

Bhratrahari (Bharthari) written 100 salokas on Vairaag. This collection is called 'Vairagya Shatak'. He also wrote 200 other salokas. All these 300 slokas are available in a single volume.

I have quoted Bhratrahari in one of my Punjabi articles in 'Rahatnama Bhai Chaupa Singh - Ik Adhiyain'. :)

These salokas are in pure Sanskrit. These are translated into Braj too.

Where can i get this book?

In my personal collection. :D

Nothing's gupt. It'll be out soon enough. I'll post an advert on here for it when it turns up in the post (Indian publishing).

I comment in the introduction on the link between the two texts. They hold a similar aim, draw on similar types of metaphor but have clear differences to the point that the two are distinct works. If anything, Bhavrasamrit is in fact an understanding of vairag from more a bhakti perspective, something the original doesn't address.
