Terry: Dear Ram, do you have some way of “knowing” if “I’m wasting away again”?
Ram: If you think you might be wasting away you probably are. When you are thriving, you know it. But then there is Vedanta, which says, “If you know you are wasting away, are you wasting away?”
~ Love, Ram
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.
