Q: What is it that, as a renowned spiritual teacher, you would care to say you teach?
Seriousness implies to have the capacity to examine very, very deeply and give your whole life to that examination.
‘What is’ can only be observed totally, read totally, understood totally, when there is no interpretation, no translation, no nuance according to my prejudices, inclinations, so that in this attention the ‘what is’ undergoes a radical change.
If I have no image of you then I’m seeing you anew, fresh.

What is the point of education?
Dialogue 2 - San Diego, California,USA - 16 February 1972
What is the function of an educator?
Why in the modern world are children so violent, disorganized?
What is meditation?
Meditation is to cleanse the mind of every form of deception.
It’s only when the mind is quiet you see things clearly.
Any conscious effort to meditate is not meditation.
Self-knowing is so much more important than meditation.
Wisdom is self-knowing. There is no wisdom in a book.
