Eshwar Segobind was completely unknown to me before this interview, and I feel fortunate that his name was passed to me through friends in the TAT Foundation. Eshwar’s spiritual path is remarkable both for its brevity and for the depth of practical insight he manifests. In less than a year, Eshwar went from a recovery program to a profound spiritual awakening to his true nature.
Eshwar Segobind is happy to speak to those with sincere questions and does not charge for his time. You can reach him at: sensewithoutmind [@] gmail. I trust you can decipher the last part of that means “@gmail.com”.
