Books I Have Loved

Tenth: Arnold’s Light of Asia.
I have to talk about two more books, and even if I die I will complete my discourse.

Eleventh. My eleventh choice is Bijak. Bijak is Kabir’s selection of songs. Bijak means ‘the seed’ – and of course the seed is subtle, very subtle, invisible. You cannot see it unless it sprouts and becomes a tree.

Don’t interrupt. Do you want to continue? – that’s the question. Never ask me, ask yourself. If you don’t want to continue, simply inform me, that’s enough. It is really so difficult to ride on two horses, and that is what I am doing. Moreover one is a mare and one is a stallion. Now what to do – two different directions....

Twelfth. Because of this situation I choose the book by Herbert Marcuse, One Dimensional Man. I am against it, but he has written a beautiful book. I am against it because I know a man is fulfilled only when he is multidimensional, when he is spread in all dimensions possible, not one-dimensional. One Dimensional Man is the story of modern man; it is my twelfth choice.
