  1. Gurudev, 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 ...
  2. 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 ...

  3. 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. ...
  4. 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 ...
  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...
  8. Gurudev, Do you think that the majority of our problems come from our relationship with our parents as the psychologists think?

    No, major problems come because of your own mind. Don’t cling that onto the parents, poor things.

    Few years back, a young girl came to me with her parents. The girl was past her teenage, around 21-22 years old, and she had such a good relationship with ...

  9. Gurudev, Do you really think that it is possible to stop hating someone?

    Don’t stop hating, keep hating them. Do what you find easiest my dear! If doing something is bothering you, and you are finding it so difficult to do, then why do it.
    If you do something difficult and you still become miserable, what is the point? Do ...
  10. Gurudev, After a couple of failed relationships, how do I overcome the desire to be in another relationship. I feel guilty when I wish I had a partner, because in the past I have failed.

    Okay, there are two things that you can do.
    1. If you feel that it (relationship) is not for you then move on, move alone like a lion.
    2. If you feel that you really need it, then try again till you succeed. Keep trying all your life, till you go ...
