I am studying to become an Engineer so I can work on renewable energy and pollution. To become an Engineer I need to be prepared to work 8 hours a day in an office and have many sleepless nights. How is this life for enlightenment?

What is your actual purpose of life ? I believe it is wonderful to work on renewable energies. If we do not protect the planet, we will not be able to live in the future. In that way your work is of greatest importance. If you were to feel though that you would want to awaken to the truth of humans, support other´s minds on their path, then you would put everything else aside, because awakening to the truth cannot be done half heartedly.

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