  7. Gurudev, every sip of knowledge given by you is very juicy.  It is easy to digest too. Could you please talk a little on Yoga Vasishta in a simple manner?

  9. Gurudev, when I teach, I teach from the space of ‘I know’. But in reality, sometimes I don’t know. I am a seeker, how to be in the ‘I know’ and ‘I want to know’ at the same time. How to teach and remain a seeker at the same time?
