Third Public Dialogue in Madras

Thursday, January 11, 1979

  • Why does the brain form habits, which is tradition, whether it is ten days old, or ten thousand years old, why does it do it? The brain can only function in security. Is there such a security?
  • Will you throw away your illusions, throw away your habits, because you see the reason, the logical consequence of forming habits?
