Ch. 7, "The Disease Called Seriousness" might be from Seriousness. --Sugit (talk) 11:07, 24 December 2013 (PST)


Clearly only some, if any chapters are translations from Hindi. Do we know which chapters are translated ? --Rudra (talk) 22:48, 26 March 2014 (PDT)


At least these chapters are original English: #1, 2, 3, 7, 11, 12 and 13 (audio recordings exist, in spite of what the CD-ROM says) and #15 (see video below). -- Sugit (talk) 05:57, 18 November 2014 (PST)


one of the questions in chapter 15 (unknown place and date) :

Question CAN RELIGION OR MEDITATION HELP ONE TO BE MORE ECONOMICALLY WELL OFF? CAN IT MAKE A POOR COUNTRY RICH?

No, it cannot. It is not an economic movement; it is a religious movement. It has a specific dimension within which to work. It can help a person to become more conscious, it can help a person to be more silent, it can help a person to be calm and collected, but it cannot help economically in any way. If you take life as a whole, then to waste life only in economics and politics is a great wastage. If you take life as a whole then ultimately, whatsoever you achieve, what is inside you is the only achievement. All else is just superficial. Religion and meditation cannot help to make a poor country rich in any way. It cannot. But it can help a poor man to be rich -- in a very noneconomic sense. If riches only mean the outward thing then religion is absolutely irrelevant, but if you think in terms of inner consciousness, peace, a blissful attitude, a life lived as an inner celebration, ll then it can help. And to me, that is more meaningful.

now listen to this video :


If the year in the title of this video is true, then the time period of the book should be extended to 1973. Anyone an idea of the credibility? Ma Satya Bharti, in the introduction to the book says 1967 to 1972. -- Sugit (talk) 06:03, 18 November 2014 (PST)


Add categories of First Editions until it will not be proven otherwise. --DhyanAntar 06:44, 30 July 2018 (UTC)


More chapters can be published earlier, maybe even in Hindi. To be researched.--DhyanAntar 05:06, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
