You do us a great service in this discussion of the "G" word! I hear so many verbal contortions translators and commentators adopt in order to avoid using the "G" word. And yet, how can it NOT be a part of this discussion? Also love the observation that a question has many sides, not just two: so true, so true!

a very useful talk.  Starting with God but then talking about Yoga as a recovery programme where inclusivity means among other things, persmission for practicing, discussing, enquiring into the unfamiliar, into what makes us uncomfortable, what is not easy to broach.  I am also going to remember that satsang is the coming together to talk about what is, the truth.  And that a question has a myriad sides to it.  Thank you so much for devoting time to this super important
