“Summa Iru” by David Godman
In the spring of 1993 Papaji and David Godman sat in the beautiful botanical garden in Lucknow, where Papaji lovingly answered a wide variety of questions. His answers are sometimes serious, sometimes humorous, but always profound and direct.
The questions to which Papaji replies to are:.
. Why is what you offer not called a teaching?
. Are you a guru?
. Is there a power, or grace, in your presence that helps people recognise the Self?
. Are there any qualifications for enlightenment?
. If enlightenment is so easy, why do so few succeed?
. Is it necessary to have a Master or a Guru?
. Are ecstasy and bliss states of mind?
