  1. Loved this Bob, and thank you Donna for bringing up these interviews.

    Bob, it is so good to hear your voice for the first time! and your honesty just shines through, I like how you say that your biggest surprise on your amazing Gita Talk series was that people were interested, and we are!

    I agree with the idea of the Gita being in every teacher training too, it is such a deep book, we must really wrestle with it and what you do with the "Talks" series is presenting it in a way where we can all remember it and think about it, I am sure, Krishna would be happy to see.

    Also, I very much like what you envision for the next year @Elephant — oh, and go New York!

  2. It's was a first for me as well to actually speak live and in person with Bob. His comments allow us to know him, but it's wonderful to get it straight from the source and to recognize his genuine desire to share and learn together. Thank you Bob for all you do and the way in which you do it.

  3. The interview was a great pleasure for me, too, Donna. I'm pleased to be a part of this series.
