Q

Ott, I notice you draw influence from impersonalist and/or voidist philosophers (such as Alan Watts), but I've read/heard you denouce personalism/God in many places. Have you read Bhagavad-Gītā and/or Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, or any other Vedic literatures translated by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda, with his purports on the original Sanskrit verses? Self-realisation is pretty straightforward, but God-realisation must come through a bona fide source of information descending through disciplic succession (parampara) from Krsna Himself, the Absolute Truth. So, what I'm wondering is: have you not yet had the fortune to come in contact with a true representative of Krsna, God, or are you ignoring the evidence to maintain your own position as God so you may avoid scriptural injunctions which may be unfavourable to the false ego?

"Keep the company of those who seek the truth, but run from those who think they have found it."

Alan Watts has such a mellifluous cadence to his voice, don't you think?
