  1. Gurudev, I am not able to put an end to the doubts and suspicions in my relationship, and I do not want to end my relationship because of this. What should I do?

    That’s it. Knowing this is enough. Now you know that no matter how much you have doubted your relationship, it has brought you no results at all. This much you are convinced about. So just move ahead now. Everything in life moves according to some mysterio ...
  2. So, you say that for a good relationship, we have to pamper the husband’s ego. As a working woman, I find that my potential gets limited because I have to do the same for my male bosses and my male colleagues.

    Oh, you don’t have to do it all the time! You should have some fun in the office as well. Sometime poke their ego and see what happens. Have fun!
    One thing is for sure, whether at home or at workplace, don’t sacrifice your smile for anyth ...

  3. Gurudev, we have learnt that there are 16 sanskaras which define and direct the flow of life. Why is there no sanskara for divorce? Was it not there in the Vedic times?

    You know, sanskaras are there so that you get something from them. A divorce is using the delete button, that is it.
    Maybe even sanyaasa could be called as a delete button, wherein you leave everything. It is not that you enter something ...
  4. How do you forgive someone that you have a close relationship with, who has betrayed you and let you down continuously?

    Well, what option do you have? If there is any other good option, tell me, I will go along with you. Let us say, we do not forgive, what is the other option? Hold it against them. Does it benefit you in any way? It does not benefit you! You get even more ...
  5. Gurudev, I am a victim of one sided love, always. Please give me some idea or tips to make it two sided.

    I have no experience in this.
    Let’s think. All problems are caused by love only. There are two things. One is people express their love too much, and then there are others who do not express it at all. Both are no good.
    If you express yo ...

  6. Gurudev, I am not able to behave intelligently or cleverly before the one whom I love and respect a lot. I do too many silly things because of this. What should I do?

    Never mind, it is alright. There is some beauty even in behaving foolishly. That silly behavior also amuses people.
    Sometimes an intelligent person cannot give the joy and amusement that a foolish person gives because of his ways. ...
  7. 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 ...
  8. Gurudev, when there is love between two people, they decide to get married. Then why does the love cease to exist after marriage?

    See, I cannot say this in this matter. I have no experience in this! (Laughter). Neither do I have any experience of marriage, nor have I ever felt that love has ceased to exist!

    See, when we love a person with an intention to gain something from him ...

  9. Gurudev, if marriages are made in heaven, then why so many divorces happen on Earth?

    Marriages are made in heaven, but divorces are made on Earth! (Laughter)
    Lack of patience. Somewhere in our country we are losing patience. We want everything immediately, and we want quick result, and quick changes.

    In our Canadian organization, w ...

  10. Gurudev, how to make my home a place of happiness. Even on weekends my wife picks up arguments.

    You know what? I’ll give you an advice. Take turns in an argument, don’t do it at the same time. You argue on Monday, let her argue on Sunday! And you keep smiling. You know, an argument cannot be countered with an argument. Questions cannot be replied wit ...
