In this book, Radha Ma, "a totally free being", cogently answers a wide variety of devotees' questions covering the whole field of Advaita Vedanta and Self Realization, often referring to Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi whom she clearly loves.Questions are posed by several different intelligent persistent interrogators, and virtually the whole range of issues concerning the crucial tachings of Enlightenment and spiritual practice are covered in these compelling satsang dialogues. She answers each questioner with unfailing accuracy according to his or her needs, but in such a way thatwe may all learn and benefit from her eloquent prescriptions, advice and guidance. This book is a treasure chest filled with many precious jewels set in the pure gold of the non-dual Advaitic truth.“The symptoms of all fevers are same; like raise in the body temperature, headache, body pain etc. But nature of the fever may be different like Typhoid, Malaria etc. So there is no single medicine for these fevers. It depends on the patients and the nature of the fever.Same way, the questions of the seekers. The questions may look similar; but the source of these questions and the maturity of the seekers are different. So there can not be a common teaching. Every question has to be dealt in a totally different way depending on the questioner."
