In his address, the Swamiji said that the high standards to claim oneself as a human being are handed down to us through great personalities in our scriptural tradition, often in the form of a meaningful dialogue.

Yaksha Prashna is one such a brilliant exchange found in the epic Mahabharatha, between the Lord of Dharma in the form of Yaksha and the Pandava King Yudishtra.

The 124 questions and answers offered utmost clarity on a wide range of subjects dealing with all aspects of human life. The book explores the deeper dimensions of this exchange and uncovers its spiritual relevance, the Swamiji said.
