  1. Gurudev, can a person who doesn't believe in the idea or reality of God be spiritual?

    Yes, sure! One doesn’t need to have a particular belief system to be spiritual. One simply has to have the spirit of enquiry, then you are spiritual.
    You need to be bubbling with enthusiasm. If you are aware of the cosmic reality, that there is much m ...
  2. Gurudev, you spoke of one God at Satsang. Does that mean that you see Hindu Gods as more metaphors than Gods and Goddesses? And does this conflict with your lineage?

    No not at all. See, one white ray when it goes through a prism, it splits into seven colors. All these seven colors are part of one rainbow, yet they are all different. They have their own quality, their own identity, their own flavor to it. So it is a ...

  3. Gurudev, Lord Krishna revealed His Vishwaroopa form (the Supreme Universal form of the Lord) to Arjuna. When will you reveal your Vishwaroopa form and to whom?

    See, the entire creation is the form of the Lord. This is what Vishwaroopa Darshan means. It means seeing the one Lord in everything around you, whether it is the rivers, the mountains, stones, people, or animals.
    God is love. You must acquire ...
  4. Gurudev, I fear the death of my near and dear ones. Please tell me how I can overcome my fear.

    Is there anyone who in this world who does not belong to you? Who is a stranger to you? Just observe. This is where your faith in God becomes important. Just believe in God, know that He is there and He will take care of everything for you. He will protect ...
  5. Gurudev, you are God. Then which God do you believe in?

    ‘Which’ God you ask? Are there many Gods? There is only one and that is in you, in me. There are no two ...
  6. 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 ...
  7. Gurudev, in the Bible Christ says, ‘I am the only way’. The Koran says that it is the only way, and the Gita also says ‘Mam ekam sharanam vraja’? Is this the reason for all religious conflicts? How can we change this?

    This knowledge was given to people present at that time, to help focus their mind in the present. Now if you are listening to me, I will tell you, ‘This is the truth, just be here, now!’ This is because the mind has a tendency to glorify the past, or ...
  8. An unprecedented calamity hit Kedarnath and thousands of people lost their lives and have been misplaced. All of them went to the pilgrim to pray and have faced this calamity. The faith of many people may be shaken at this stage. How do we deal with this?

    First of all, let us understand that God is impartial. Nature is impartial. It does not see what is mine and what is yours. God is not living only in Kedarnath. He is all over. He is in your heart. He is everywhere.

    The pilgrim spots where many tourist ...

  9. Please give me a scientific definition of God.

    God is the substratum of creation, from which everything has come, into which everything goes.
    GOD is ‘Generator’, ‘Operator’ and ‘Destroyer’, that principle is called GOD. Brahma (generator), Vishnu (operator) and Mahesh (destroy ...
  10. Why does God sometimes help those who are not worthy of it? God is never biased, then why is it that some people are poor and some are rich? Why can’t there be equality?

    It is very difficult to understand God’s brain or God’s mind. It is better you give up!
    Sometimes you get all these questions, ‘Why does God make old people, who studied all their life, die? Why did Einstein die? He should have given him another 200 y ...
