Initial silence is followed by spiritual instruction about Knowledge of the Self beyond the body, mind, and ego. Dialogues on Self-inquiry, the use of the Vedas, the freedom of Self-knowledge in the midst of action, the destruction of ignorance, and other spiritual topics. Concludes with a recitation in Sanskrit and English of verses from Ashtavakra Samhita.
Questioner: I actually stopped meditating to go eat.
Questioner: I donít know.
Nome: Isnít it just the body that gets the food and eats it, or does some errand or some choir or does some work? Are you not the body when body is relatively still? There is plenty of motion of the body but you are not noticing it; circulation, respiration, etc. But to your five senses it seems as if still. Does ignorance suddenly start when the body starts moving? Knowledge is deeper than the shifting of metal attention.
