  1. Gurudev, you have always taken care of me. I have only one wish: For as long as I am in this body and in my other births to come, please make me your disciple and liberate me. Show me the truth so that I can liberate others too.

    Recently, a saint came to see me in Rishikesh, and in our congregation he said a beautiful thing. He said, 'One who has learnt in this school will stay. One who has not learnt only will leave'.
    Usually, in a school, if you have learnt and you ...

  2. Gurudev, will you help me become a healer? I want to help people.

    Yes, but you should not make it a profession. You shouldn’t say, 'Okay, I am going to heal you, but you have to give me some money'.
    You know, with that type of healers, the healing does not work. It may appear to work for a little while but really it ...
  3. Gurudev, I have been a follower of the Radhaswami tradition for a very long time. In my desire to meet you, I attended the Happiness program and learnt the Sudarshan Kriya. Now I feel guilty that I am not doing something wrong. Can I follow two different spiritual traditions together?

    There is no need to feel guilty at all. See, you started following a particular spiritual tradition sincerely and did a lot of good service there, as a result of that you got the gift of coming to this tradition. But once you are practicing the meditati ...

  4. Dear Gurudev, in my daily life I catch myself breathing very slowly and deeply. In this state it is hard for me to do physical work, or get connected to the situation in hand. Please advice.

    Do some yoga and do some exercises. Very shallow breath is good while you’re meditating but not while you’re in activity.

  5. How do we know what our capabilities are and how can we enhance them?

    See, sometimes we become aware of our own capabilities, and sometimes we come to know about them when someone else speaks about them, or when we hear about it from some third person.
    For quite some time, Lord Hanuman was not aware of his strengths to ...

  6. Gurudev, there are so many people who come on the path and then leave. Why does that happen? They are so involved and suddenly they stop coming.

    How many people have done that? There would be just a few, and there could be various reasons.
    Some people come on the path like going to a restaurant. After you eat in a restaurant, you don’t think about the restaurant for many hours, right? So they ...
  7. Gurudev, please explain why there are so many paths for spirituality. How can I be sure of which one to choose?

    It is like asking, there are so many people, how do I know whom should I choose as a life partner. Listen to your heart. When your heart says this is right for me, then just walk in that. Not out of greed. ...
  8. Yoga Vasistha talks a lot about self-effort and you tell us to relax. I am unable to figure out what to apply when. In spirituality, when to do self-effort and when to relax?

    There are two things, Pravritti and Nivritti (action and relaxation).
    When you are in action, effort is needed and when you are in relaxation effortlessness is needed. They go hand in hand. But we do it the other way around. When we are ...

  10. Gurudev, how can I intensify and speed up my spiritual quest? Is it possible to bring it on the fast track?
