My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Stop looking. Start living.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. "Imagine" & "Mother" by John Lennon, "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" & "Love Minus Zero" by Bob Dylan, "One" by U2, Anything by Vikash & Prabash the Indian sitar masters, "Saraswati Mata" by Daphne Tse (Can I have more than 5? It's too hard to choose!)

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I've been fortunate to study with real Teachers like Krishnamacharya and U.G. Krishnamurti. What I've learned from them, and hopefully what I can awaken and empower in others, is this inherent gift of their own Life which is absolutely perfect, just as it is right now, amidst all the pain and struggles of daily living. That is the best I can do.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My partner.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I see all things as having a purpose for happening, and even in my struggles (perhaps, especially in those), I've tried not to let regret take root in me. I have felt regret's restriction in allowing Life to function freely. So truly, and thankfully, I have no regrets. The only wish I do have is that I wish I could have more time and more energy to convey my message.
