The idea of a series of 20-minute dialogues came about when Kabir Jaithirtha, while engaging with 13-year-old children, noticed that they didn’t always have the stamina to engage meaningfully in the earlier, once a week, hour-long format. Hence the idea of having more frequent dialogues, for a shorter duration, everyday, with the group of children came about.
…what happens when, instead of thought-knowledge, one puts attention in the middle of the picture?
It was Kabir who introduced it… and it flowed from there.
This is… what I would call “the spirit of Kabir”.
It (attention) must not be left out of the equation; otherwise, what is left is ashes.
