Question 1
Beloved master, atomic war is on the horizon, the deadly disease AIDS is spreading fast, and scientists say the earth will change its axis by the end of this century. But why are the priests, politicians and governments not aware of these facts? And why are they not interested in making the public aware? Please comment.
Question 2
Beloved master, will you please give some message to the people of Nepal and India? Also, you say that you are not teaching a doctrine and that knowledge can merely be a vehicle to express the experience one has had. Is it not true that the experience itself will communicate itself?
Question 3
Beloved master, what are the characteristics of an enlightened being? What is the phenomenon of self-realization, god-realization and no-realization?
Question 4
Beloved master, are will and surrender two names of the same path? Kindly comment.
