Reader of the questions: Sw Asheesh (Nepali monk?) and unidentified man.
Question 1
Beloved master, is there really Upanishad happening here when we sit near you and you say something to us?
Question 2
Beloved master, how can we be close to you when you are far and above us in every respect.
Question 3
Beloved master, I've read a translation of the Indian aesthetician, Abhinava Gupta, in which he says the taste of rasa is the same as the taste of Brahma. His meaning, if I understand correctly, is that the aesthetic experience is of the same order as the experience of God. Sometimes, especially with art and music, I find a spontaneous joy arising. Is this a small taste of what it's like to be egoless?
Question 4
Beloved master, your answers are very convincing, very clear and very useful. I think your presence in Nepal has been a great blessing. In you I have found especially these three qualities of love, trust, and compassion. You have loved our country, Nepal, you have trusted us, and also you are compassionate to us.
Thank you so much for your being this.
I have another question:
Is there a way to save the drowning human world?
