One of the final dialogues of the epic Ramayana is not between gods, not between saints, not between humans…is between birds. The eagle Garudaji asks the crow Bhushundiji the greatest philosophical questions. The crow Bhushundiji gives the eagle Garudaji the greatest practical answers. How fortunate we are to listen in on this divine dialogue through the amplifier that is our E-Vichara…
