Maharshi: They differ according to the temperaments of the individuals and according to the spiritual ripeness of their minds. There cannot be any instruction en masse.
D.: Why does God permit suffering in the world? Should He not with His omnipotence do away with it at one stroke and ordain the universal realisation of God?

Maharshi: Suffering is the way for Realisation of God.
D.: Should He not ordain differently?

Maharshi: It is the way.
D.: Are Yoga, religion, etc., antidotes to suffering?

Maharshi: They help you to overcome suffering.

D.: Why should there be suffering?

Maharshi: Who suffers? What is suffering?

No answer! Finally the Yogi rose up, prayed for Sri Bhagavan’ s blessings for his own work and expressed great regret for his hasty return. He looked very sincere and devoted and even emotional.
