Question: Why does Ashrita always act like a bear?Guru: You have to ask Ashrita’s soul to answer that question. Ashrita’s soul will say that it has given him inexhaustable life-energy in the vital. What can he do with that energy? He wants to share it with you so that he can have some fun, some recreation.
