- Question 1
- Yoga is a path of elevation, of raising the life-energy upwards, whereas Lao Tzu's method is exactly the opposite: of bringing down the energy to the navel centre. So the question invariably rises: which is the right method?
- Question 2
- How a person should find the internal centre that is mentioned by Lao Tzu and develop its hunger.
- Question 3
- Lao Tzu stresses inaction, whereas Krishna lays stress on action. How do these two theories compare and contrast?
- Question 4
- From your discourses, it appears that Lao Tzu extolled the greatness of non-action. And yet, he has given sutras for sadhana like concentration on the navel centre, the breath, etcetera. Is this not contradictory?
- Question 5
- According to Lao Tzu, good and evil is like night and day, and since God has made man independent, he can do good or evil as he chooses. But why is it that nature does evil? The floods come and innocent people get drowned, or a fire rages and people are burnt to death. There are so many natural catastrophes.
