  1. How does one go about leaving this realm of consciousness and entering different realms of spiritual and mental understanding? What is the best way to move past the physical world?

    This is the fifth aspect which I said, knowledge! You don’t have to leave things here and go, being here, amidst all the noise, still recognize that beauty, that thing that’s so beautiful, so wonderful, so fascinating, right here and now! But that rig ...
  2. I have heard that after years of meditation that one’s whole life becomes a constant meditation. Can you explain this?

    Yes! That inner calmness stays whatever you do. You may be walking, talking, eating, chitchatting, watching news, and there is that certain serenity which continues. You get so used to it. It doesn’t leave you. But again, ‘When will I get this sort o ...
  3. After meditating for a while I have become aware of my patterns of reactions, such as defensiveness and anger. How do I get myself to react differently?

    Now disown all that you think are your patterns, let them be. If you start identifying that my patterns are like this, I am always angry, I am always defensive, then you are latching onto the past or some patterns. So disown them. They were there yest ...
  4. During meditation, my mind becomes silent but I haven’t been able to transcend or go beyond my mind. Am I trying too hard?

    Yes, you should not try to go beyond the mind. For your own sake don’t do anything, just let it be, okay. If you are on a massage table, what do you do? You just let the masseur take care of you. The masseur does the job and you do nothing. Same in me ...
  5. Dear Guruji, I had a beautiful meditation where I was aware but had no sensation in my body. There was only ‘I Am’ and then my body jerked and I was back. What happened?

    It is good, you had a glimpse of that inner state, the consciousness that you are. That is normal and that is good. But now don’t sit and try to have the same experience tomorrow. ‘Today I want to experience that same state that I experienced yesterday. I ...
  6. How to quiet the voice inside my head while meditating?

    There are several things you can do about it. First is accepting it and not fighting with it. When you fight with it and feel that you should not have this noise and you want to get rid of it, the more you want to get rid of it the more it will stick ...
  7. Pravritti Nivritti

    Life is a combination of Pravritti and Nivritti. There are two attitudes that we have to pay attention to. One is, when we go inward, we say, ‘Everything is okay; anyway not a blade of grass moves without Divine intervention. God has kept us like this, so ...
  8. Gurudev, you often tell us ‘Antar Mukhi Sada Sukhi’. Is it possible to be like this in today’s world?

    Listen, you are living in the world, and still you sleep everyday for some time. Similarly, if for a little while every day you meditate and go inward then you will see such peace arising from within you. This will help you in your day to day life. So it i ...
  9. Gurudev, what happens to you in meditation and what should happen to me when I meditate?

    This is the problem. When you read about what happened to someone else in meditation then you sit and expect the same to happen to you and so you will never have meditation. Just sit and do nothing. ...
  10. Gurudev, to retain the state acquired in meditation, what should I do?

    Just keep doing what you are doing now. You have to continue doing it, again and again. ‘Baar baar Raghuveer samai’: Again and again meditate. So do meditation, sadhana and satsang and talk about it as well. Anything that is in your speech, the mind a ...
