In your lectures you talk about Gurdjieff, Ramana, Ramakrishna, Basho, and others who are physically not alive, but why don’t you talk about the enlightened persons who are physically alive today?
The question is from Swami Yoga Chinmaya. He has the knack of asking foolish questions.
Now, if there is some enlightened person alive, he can talk for himself. Why should I talk for him? So I talk about the dead people because they cannot talk themselves. This is so simple.
