want to do nama smarana always. But I am also keen on
getting higher education. (She is in the first year College
class). What should I do?”.

two desires.

Janaki: If I am always doing nama smarana, how can I
carry on studies for which the mind is required?

Bhagawan did not answer to this question.

As long as we are like pendulum swinging between
Samsara and realisation, we will always remains with
our pockets filled with doubts, dissatisfaction...
