“Beyond Self Realization” by Henner Ritter
This interview from the 4th of January 1993 starts with a statement by Papaji, “I believe beyond self-realization there is no you and there is no me. No one is a questioner and no one is questioned about. And no questions are there to ask.” As he reads from the questions handled to him by Henner Ritter, Papaji speaks about kindness as an antidote to global crisis and of consciousness as the underlying substratum and at the centre of everything there is; separation and boundaries existing only as concepts. Papaji also speaks in length about surrender and how other belief systems and practises are pulling one away from the Self.
