In order to receive anything, you need to qualify for it. If you receive a dress, the dress should fit you. Otherwise, it is of no use having such a dress. If you receive food, the food should be edible. Otherwise what is the use of having such food? Similarly, with something to drink; you should be able to drink it and hold it in your system. Otherwise, however wonderful it is, it will be of no use to you. Knowledge and relevance. An event or instance has reference. And wherever there is life, there is reverence. Without these three principles - knowledge, relevance & reverence, life cannot evolve. So also with Ashtāvakra Gītā. Certain qualifications are required to acquire this knowledge.
