An energy that will solve all our problems

Public Talk 2 New Delhi

Don’t waste your life. Questions from the audience followed the talk

In the unobservable silence not produced by thought, there is no direction and a totally different kind of energy. Meditation is inward freedom in which there isn’t a single image.
