< Back to Question and Answer

Throwing oneself away is such an enigma. How can I ever say about myself I am not I don't exist? The more I look at this the more I feel my existence and its mistery . The sage says that there is never such a thing like me. Can you clarify this ?


Don´t think about it in a complicated way. Where are you when you are sleeping? Where are you when you are completely absorbed in your work? When we think about ourselves, we exist. When we think about throwing ourselves away, we exist. But if we do it for humanity, for society, as long as we say we are doing it, we are only doing it for ourselves.


Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
