synopsis
(Translated as in Krishna: The Man and His Philosophy on CD-ROM)
Question 1
What is the subtle difference, if any, between Mahavira's transcendence of attachment, Christ's holy indifference, Buddha's indifference and Krishna's non-attachment? And in what way are they the same?
Question 2
You explained to us Krishna's choicelessness. The Geeta, however, says that one who departs from this world when the sun is on his northward path attains to liberation. But what about the one who dies when the sun is on his southward path? And how does Krishna's sthitaprajna, one who is settled in his intelligence, compare with his devotee who is on the path of love? Krishna defines sthitaprajna as one who remains unperturbed and steady in the midst of both happiness and pain. But this state can also lead to utter insensitivity. And will you call it human if somebody does not take pleasure as pleasure and pain as pain?
Question 3
A comparative study of a sthitaprajna, one settled in his intelligence, and a devotee, remains to be made by you.
Question 4
Please explain fully Krishna's revolutionary concept of sex. What was the secret of his tremendous sex appeal for women that thousands of them were mad after him and felt satiated and fulfilled by him? Besides, you said that fullness of love leads to cessation of sex. If so, how is it then possible for one to enter into sex after achieving fullness of love and the highest state of samadhi or ecstasy?
Question 5
There is truth in this statement.
Question 6
Gandhi used to walk leaning on two women -- one on each side.
Question 7
Was it because he was old?
Question 8
Why can't Mahavira tolerate it?
Question 9
Like Cleopatra?
