Egg on My Face (an Apology)
James: This is an apology to anyone who was disturbed by my recent satsang posting entitled Love to Hate. It is difficult to express dark and brutal humor in a short piece of writing. The person I wrote to is English, appreciates this kind of humor and did not have a problem with it. A friend called my attention to it and convinced me that it sends the wrong message, so I have removed the offending phrase.
ShiningWorld policy dictates that all publications must be submitted to the official ShiningWorld Board of Censors, i.e. Sri Sri Sundariji. Unfortunately, Ms. Sundari was asleep at the switch and this one slipped through the cracks. ☺
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.
