  1. Gurudev, is it more important to keep oneself happy or others around happy?

    See, both are important. If you have become a saint or a sanyasi (one who has renounced everything), then you need to keep others happy, but if you are a samsari (one leading a worldly life), then you need to keep yourself and others happy. < ...

  4. 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 ...
  5. 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?

    See, the son-in-law only visits his in-laws (the wife’s parents or family) during the festivals like Holi or Diwali. He does not go there every day, isn't it? But the daughter-in-law is at the home of the in-laws all the time.

  6. Gurudev, I have heard this couplet: 'Sadguru pura je mile, paiye rattan upaar; Mann dije Guru aapne, paiye moksh dwaar' (One who has a Sadguru receives wealth greater than the rarest gems, and one whose heart is devoted to the Sadguru finds liberation effortlessly).

    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 ...

  7. Gurudev, How to be in a relationship without depending on the other, and without feeling possessive.

    Know that love is your nature. By nature you are loving, and relax. Give the person whom you love their freedom; their space.
    When you love somebody, you almost want to strangle them. You want to police them from morning till night. It may sound very ...

  8. Gurudev, How to get close to and help people we love who are closed down, and who have built barriers around themselves?

    With patience and perseverance.
    You know, people who have built barriers around them are somewhere insecure inside. They have some prejudice and insecurity. And these are the two important things in society that we need to attend to: prejudice agains ...

  9. Gurudev, I love my soul mate so much, that I fear that it does not leave much room for me to love the Divine.

    I have no experience of a soul mate.
    Why not? I don’t think there is any hindrance. If you have a soul mate, and you found some new love, you can as well see that as a gift to you.
    Your friends are a gift, your partner is a gift to you ...
