List of questions with timestamps: • 6:25 -- How to know the Self when It cannot be objectified? Is inference sufficient? • 27:30 -- While we agree that waking, dreaming, and deep sleep are experienced in consciousness, why can't we say that they are real instead of unreal since they are indeed experienced? • 44:50 -- If the realization of atman is an experiential reality, then why is there a logical conflict between different spiritual traditions? Does it mean that the realized master's have different experiences? • 54:35 -- If consciousness illumines Maya, then why does it need the support of Maya to realize itself? ► To support Vedanta Society of New York: http://bit.ly/SupportVedantaNY
