  1. Gurudev, I am quite organized but my wife and daughter are totally opposite. This is one of the reasons I get annoyed at times. How do I correct them?

    That is okay, you should keep doing it so that they learn to be more organized. Otherwise there is no fun in life! Someone should lose temper, someone should cajole and pacify. Otherwise it will be so boring; eventless, juiceless, tasteless life. But do ...

  3. Gurudev, why does it become increasingly difficult to handle the family? I can handle and influence everyone but the ones I love. What is lacking?

    You have to do it indirectly. You have tell someone who is close to your family and influence the family through them. Perhaps they know you too well! If you are so centered, and if you live the knowledge a hundred percent, then you will see that ...
  4. Gurudev, is it more important to keep oneself happy or others around happy?

  7. Gurudev, Why do I attract people who hurt me?

    It is not people who hurt you. It is your own foolishness, your own mind, your own vulnerability and your own emotions that entangle you, and make you feel hurt. Do you think people have no other business, that they want to come and hurt you? Do the ...
  8. Gurudev, you have said in the Satsang that the daughter-in-law should try to win the hearts of her in-laws by serving them. Does this not apply to the son-in-laws also? Why is it that while the daughter-in-law accepts and serves her in-laws as her own, the son-in-law does not do so?

    This is what I just explained, isn’t it? I gave you the answer even before you asked me this question! (Laughter) What does a Guru want from you? Just your heart, isn’t it? So dedicate your heart to the Guru, and be free! Giving your heart ...
