What is the best question and what is the best answer to the best question?

The best question: What is the nature of the supreme truth/Self as it really is?

In the Yoga Vasishtha, the great sage Vasishtha answers his disciple Rama’s question about the supreme truth by becoming silent for a long time during which time his breath ceased and eyes remained closed.

The supreme truth is answered only by complete silence — verbally and mentally — because all verbal answers are limited by duality.
