- CD-ROM on this book: "Talks given at a meditation camp at Kulu/Manali, India, (Sep 26-Oct5) except first chapter, given at CCI chambers, Bombay (July 20)."
- Question 1
- How is it that Krishna is called a celibate in spite of his being a man of joyous dance and sensuous celebration? What is the place and relevance of raasleela -- the dance of celebration -- in modern society?
- Question 2
- Legend has it that Ahilya, a woman turned into stone, had waited long enough for the coming of Rama to resurrect her, and that another ordinary woman, Kubja, persuaded Krishna to make love to her. Do these stories have some spiritual significance?
- Question 3
- In the morning you compared Rama with Krishna and Meera with Hanumana. In our tradition all of them -- Rama, Krishna, Meera and Hanumana -- have equal status; no one is superior or inferior. Perhaps each one of them is living his own individual destiny. And it is possible that some of us find ourselves in accord with Rama and Hanumana. In that case would it not be transgressing one's self-nature or swadharma if one follows Krishna and Meera because they are superior?
- Question 4
- Does Hanumana take to dancing once in a while?
- Question 5
- What do you think about cow worship? As Darwin says that the monkey is man's predecessor in physical evolution, you say that the cow precedes man in the evolution of the soul. How is it that among all animals the cow comes so close to man spiritually? Or is it that we call the cow our mother because we are an agricultural community? And what is your view on the question of cow slaughter?
