While sitting beside the river Ganges feel yourself becoming one with the flow of life and watch how slowly and slowly your whole being starts moving effortlessly. This will help you cross many obstacles in life pleasantly.
The philosophy lecture/debate here is not about preaching your old teachings or methods, that which you may find on books or the Internet easily, but it is more about being real and asking original questions which arise out of your being. Therefore once you're being you and me being me then we can communicate and go deeper into the questions together and develop a fresh understanding.
