notes
Introduction: "This booklet contains one of the hundreds of interviews taken by the foreign seekers." (That seems not entirely correct, as it is not one and not really an interview.)
According to the later book And Now, And Here, Vol 2 (1985), which has the same text (edited), this book consists in fact of 2 discourses, without any chapter-break :
  • Pages 5-35 are of Nov 4 pm, Bhulabhai Auditorium, Bombay
  • Pages 36-66 are of Nov 5 am, Opera House, Bombay
Small part(s) were published in Dynamics of Meditation, Appendix 6.
Later published as part of The Long and the Short and the All, see the discussion there.
