A Ripe Fruit
Bob: Hi, James. I guess I was a ripe fruit on the tree. I have listened to your Berlin talks and Trout Lake talks somewhat intensively over the last couple of months. One thing to say, Vedanta works. Discovering ShiningWorld has satisfied the two irritations that I had the need to be convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am awareness and the need for understanding, i.e. knowledge. The field made the right choice in you as a teacher; thank you for applying the scriptures in such a skillful manner. Cleaning up the dregs will continue until it doesn't, but what a great job lies ahead.
James: Lovely to hear from you, Bob. It is always gratifying to see Vedanta working and hear from a ripe fruit. Thanks.
For years I have happily and diligently responded to communications on the topic of Self realization. Since the publication of my book, “How to Attain Enlightenment”— currently in its third printing —and the success of this website, the volume of emails has increased considerably. Unfortunately, owing to a busy schedule of teaching and writing, I am no longer able to answer all the emails I receive in a timely fashion. However, my wife, who is also a teacher, and several well-qualified teachers we have endorsed are available to answer emails on my behalf. I encourage you to send them your questions.
