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)."
(Translated as in Krishna: The Man and His Philosophy on CD-ROM)
Question 1
Krishna says that by giving up desiring and attachment, which he calls niskamta and anasakti respectively, one is released from bondage and he attains to the supreme. But it is so difficult for ordinary men and women to be free of desiring and attachment. Please explain the significance of desirelessness and non-attachment and ways to achieve them.
Question 2
You have explained to us beautifully the meaning and significance of non-attachment. Besides non-attachment, Krishna has talked about two other things in the Geeta: one is sannyas or inaction, and the other is action without attachment to results. Please explain the relationship between non-attachment, sannyas, and action without desire for results.
Question 3
There is a problem with action without attachment and what you call the inaction of sannyas: it kills incentive to work. It is like our public sector in industries; while there is enough room for incentive in the private sector, there is very little in the public one. Please explain.
Question 4
How can one know his own distinctive type?
Question 5
What if I am attracted now by one thing and then by another?
Question 6
If two men share a common addiction they become friends.
Question 7
Krishna says to Arjuna, "If you fight, treating equally victory and defeat, gain and loss, pleasure and pain, no sin will attach to you, and you will go to heaven." Does it mean that if one fights without attachment then violence ceases to be violence?
