Robert Fasts, Meditates and Realizes the Self

In a cave deep in southern Ceylon, Robert fasted and meditated, ultimately realizing the Self beyond time, form and cause. One day a python slithered across his lap, but he was so deep within he neither saw nor felt it.

I've experienced reincarnation without losing my identity. I experience my identity that goes through the string of beads. And I never became the bead totally. Many people experience reincarnation asone bead and then another bead and then another bead. I experience it as a thread.
