3rd April, 1935
Mr. Ekanath Rao, an Engineer, asked Sri Bhagavan if solitude is necessary for vichara.
Maharshi: There is solitude everywhere. The individual is solitary always.
His business is to find it out within, and not seek it without.
D.: The work-a-day world is distracting.
Maharshi: Do not allow yourself to be distracted. Enquire for whom there is distraction. It will not afflict you after a little practice.
D.: Even the attempt is impossible.
Maharshi: Make it and it will be found not so difficult.
D.: But the answer does not come for the search inward.
Maharshi: The enquirer is the answer and no other answer can come. What comes afresh cannot be true. What always is, is true.
