Answer: The hermit’s answer to the three questions were:

i. The right time do something is ‘now’. It is the most important time because it is the only time, we have any power to act.
ii. The most necessary person is the person you are with at a particular moment, as no one knows what will happen in the future and whether we will meet anyone else.
iii. The most important thing is to do good to that person, as we are sent in this world to help other and that is our sole purpose.
