How many enlightened beings are there, at this point in time?
I don’t know. There is no way of knowing.
Do you think the experience of enlightenment for other individuals would be the same as it was for you – that atomic explosion you referred to?
So it’s a very individual situation?
It is very unique, and very individual.
And that’s why it’s so difficult for someone like yourself to explain what it is?
I am explaining it.
Yes, but it’s still difficult.
And I am explaining it better than anybody else has ever explained it!
You’ve written…350 books have now been published on the subject.
I have not written a single book.
Let’s talk about how to get to enlightenment, or how to become awakened to your enlightenment. I’ve read some of your work, and you say that there’s two ways to do it: the alone route, through meditation; and the other, through relationships.
Would you talk about the subject of relationships, please, because in North America particularly we have a good track record of relationships coming and going, coming and going. And I don’t see that awakening that you were talking about!
