  1. Gurudev, where does one seek the do’s and don'ts on karma?

    You should listen to your own conscience, your inner gut feeling. Don’t do anything which you don’t want others to do to you. That is the criteria.
    We should do that which brings long term benefit, even if it is at the cost ...

  2. Can you please talk about karma and how it works? I always question young kids that die painfully, or babies who die in the mother’s womb.

    You know, karma is unfathomable. It is very deep, like measuring the depth of an ocean. Which karma, where, what? It is all simply too big to explain, but it is the cause for any action.
    No event or action can happen without a cause, this is si ...

  3. Gurudev, few days back you were discussing about Maya (Illusion) and I thought about my mother-in-law. God has given her everything. She has a nice house, servants, car and a daughter-in- law like me. But despite of all this her face is always serious grim. And surprisingly her name is also Maya. Now I know what is Maya. Please let me know how to get liberated from Maya. (Laughter)

    I will first ask ‘Maya’ (referring here to the mother-in-law) and then let you know! (Laughter) Maybe she also wants freedom from someone. Liberation is not one sided. See, even your mother has scolded you at many times, is it not so? There isn’t a ...
  4. Gurudev, I got divorced four years ago and got remarried less than a year ago. I see that the same situations are repeating in my life. Is this karma or am I not able to apply the knowledge?

    You will know this better.
    See what mistakes you are making. Do you have acceptance? Do you serve a person? Why would someone not like to be with you if you are a fountain of joy and enthusiasm?
    Why would someone not like to be with you if you ...
  5. Gurudev, people sin in one life, why does God punish them in the next lives. Wouldn’t it be better to know the reason while you’re being punished.

    There are many different types of karma. Some things if you do today, it gives you result immediately.

    Suppose there is fire, and you keep your hand in it, will it burn today or tomorrow? It will burn now. But if you sow a mango seed, for it to grow an ...

  6. Gurudev, I have been told that a human soul can often take one to two million years to find liberation. Is it true that by doing Kriya and meditation every day, this liberation can be obtained even in one lifetime?

    Everything works with some strange karma. You must lift your eyes and look into this realm.

    There is a beautiful couplet that says, ‘This world has all the wealth, all that is needed, but one who has no karma, cannot get it.’
    So, whe ...

  7. Gurudev, I am in a situation in which I am neither able to forgive nor forget. Please guide me what to do.

    Then just think about your death, that you are going to die.
    Even if you hold on (to the situation), still you will be finished; you will go away from this world. Now, do you want to carry that impression? Come on, wake up!
    Life is so sho ...
  8. Astonishing and Mysterious Karma

    What do we get upset with? We don’t get upset with the birds, or the clouds, or with Nature. We don’t get upset with the environment. So, what do we get upset with? We get upset with the people around us. Our enemies upset us and our friends upset us as w ...
