  1. Dear Gurudev, what do you think of channeling?

    Stay away from it! I think you shouldn't get involved in channeling. You are on a path which is much higher and far superior than the channeling.
    Channeling is when some spirit comes into your body or somebody's body and says something, and i ...

  2. Many times people talk about seeking something on this path (questions like: Who am I? What is the truth?) I feel like I am not seeking anything, is that okay?

    Yes, because sometimes the seeking is not on a conscious level, but deep inside it is there.
    Why are you here in the first place? You are here because inside the soul wants something. It wants to connect with itself. So it is there inhe ...

  3. Gurudev, what actually is prayaschit? How can one become free of one’s sins? Can one ever become free of guilt, or is one doomed to live with that?

    Prayas’ means getting back to the original state; ‘chitta’ means consciousness.
    We were all born innocent. How is the mind when you are a baby? Fresh, alive, innocent. Prayaschitta means, that act which t ...

  4. Gurudev, Is it okay to mix different yoga techniques? Or should we find one way.

    No, don’t mix them, it becomes a hotch-potch. You have on your platter, such a wonderful program. All based on a single line of thought, a philosophy which is ancient yet profound, and still modern. So just follow one way. That’s the best.

    I’m saying t ...

  5. Gurudev, Why am I here? Why did I do this course? Am I normal?

    There are many standards of normality. From a lower standard, you may not be normal. From a higher standard you are normal. If from an even higher standard again, if you are not normal, then you need to be going up much more. So what do you mean by normal? ...
  6. Gurudev, Is this the right place for me? There is no way back to normal life. Even my husband who loves me couldn’t accept my activities in The Art of Living. He’s afraid that I’m going mad!

    Balance things. Don’t scare anybody. You need to balance life. Make people understand.
    This (The Art of Living) is not abnormal, this is a normal life; to be happy, to be centered and to spread the message of joy and happiness. We need to improv ...

    Inner journey and outer world events are complementary. If you are happy inside, you are able to work dynamically outside. The more dynamic you are, deeper and better is the rest and meditation. When you meditate the joy increases.

  8. My dear Gurudev, whenever I look into my heart I find you there. You have hooked me, booked me and cooked me. Please tell me what dish you are trying to make out of me.

    Listen! You are wonderful, you are so complete and that is how you could feel that intense emotion.
    One who does not have the bhaav (intense feeling) cannot even enjoy the bliss, and cannot enjoy peace. If someone is stuck in the intellect, the ...
  9. Gurudev, How can a person decide his goal irrespective of his surroundings?

    For a while, just sit by yourself and think. Keep all other things aside. See, what is it that you want? Ask yourself, ‘what is it that I want?’ And then whatever goal comes up, hold on to that. Of course, whenever you want to take up a vision, a goal, a m ...
  10. Commitment and Convenience

    A commitment can only be felt when it oversteps convenience. That which is convenient, you do not call commitment. If you just go on your convenience, your commitment falls apart causing more inconvenience! If you keep dropping your commitment because it ...
