Table of Contents
Self-assertion says, "I know, I know, I know."
Question: If somebody were to develop a very close, conscious oneness with you, would it hurt you in any way or would you be giving anything up?
Question: In your books, you always say that you can make the fastest progress with this quality or that quality. For example, at one place you say we can make the fastest progress with gratitude, and at another place you say with love. My mother wants to know how she can make the fastest progress. She wants to concentrate on only one quality.
Question: In the beginning I pushed very hard with personal effort, with aspiration, and I thought that this was good. But recently I realised that the transformation that I have already made was not made by me, but by you. So how much do I have to make personal effort and how much do I have to surrender? What should be the balance between personal effort and surrender in my case?
Question: Percentagewise, how much of your suffering is due to the world and how much is due to the disciples?
Question: In your writings you say that the goal is to have the Kingdom of Heaven on earth, that we can transform the earth so that it is bathing in divine consciousness. When this is done, what will be the use of Heaven?
Performance of the play
My Rama Is My All
Sita: Some people are saying that Sita is like the 'bad guy' in the play. I am uncertain how to portray the moment when she orders Lakshmana to go and look for Rama. I want to be angry with Lakshmana, but perhaps Sita was more afraid and lost because Rama was gone.
On improving the performance of
My Rama Is My All
Director: We got books of the oldest art from Tibet, India, Nepal and all the countries that worship Rama. We took the costumes of the northern people.
King Dasharatha: You said that the most important aspect for the King to have is more nobility. How can I get more nobility as the King?
Yamaraj: Do you have any comment about Yamaraj?
Director: To me, Rama is God. He knows when he is going to die. So the only reason I could see for Yamaraj coming was to test Lakshmana's surrender.
Director: The way I interpreted it, the real reason Yamaraj came was for Lakshmana's death, to see if Lakshmana would sacrifice his life for Rama.
Director: What about when Yamaraj is saying that whoever enters the room will die? At that time I have him pointing to Lakshmana.
Director: Can he also keep looking at Rama and just point at Lakshmana?
Rama: When did Rama actually realise that he was an incarnation of God?
