  1. Gurudev, why does it feel that staying apart from my loved ones has now created a distance between our hearts and not just a distance between places? I feel scared of this distance between the hearts.

    No, do not be afraid at all. See, when there is low tide in the ocean, the water recedes from the shore, and when there is high tide, there is so much water that comes to the shore. But this ebbing and flowing of tides does not change the (quantity) of wat ...
  2. Gurudev, How to keep on loving without expecting. How is it possible? In love expectations arise and if not fulfilled, it hurts.

    Yes, you will have to go through these gymnastics. If you have wisdom, you don’t have to go through the pain to learn. When there is lack of wisdom, you go through pain, but you will come out of it in sometime, don’t worry. This is why it is ...

  3. Gurudev, I have so much love for you, it is so much in me that I don’t know how to express it to you. Can you please tell me what to do?

    You have said it already! (Laughs) True love always feel like that. You feel you cannot express yourself, because love cannot be contained in expression. Love is so huge. And for ages, people have tried to express their love and finally they felt they c ...

  4. Gurudev, how should we handle the love and concern of the other people, if at one point we feel it has become excess for us?

    Sometimes it is difficult to even take love, let alone give love. If you say, ‘I love you so much’, to somebody, they don’t know how to respond to it. They look back like a pale dog, ‘Okay, you love me so much, now what?’

    The mind is used to dwelling ...

  5. Gurudev, can love and dispassion coexist? They seem to be contradictory.

    They should exist together, otherwise you will not be same. Like breathing in and breathing out is totally contradictory but it has to go together.
    You can’t breathe out the same time you are breathing in, they should alternate. Similarly love and dis ...
  6. Gurudev, you say we are all made up of love; how can we understand that even corrupt people are made out of love?

    Look, as a baby they were love; as they grew up, they had a lot of mud and filth around them, that’s it.
    If a diamond has fallen in a drain, it will still be a diamond. It has only fallen in the drain. Similarly, the circumstances, education, culture ...
  7. Gurudev, it might sound silly but it is a genuine question from the heart. How does one begin to love oneself more?

    There is an anecdote. Someone was trying to catch a black cat in a dark room which was not there.
    First of all, you think there is a cat and then you try to catch it. The first assumption that you don’t love yourself is itself wrong. Yo ...

  8. Gurudev, you say that two questions will be asked in the end, how much love we gave, and how much knowledge we took? I have always taken love and given knowledge. What will be my fate now?

    At least you have understood this much!
    All this time you have enjoyed giving knowledge, now start taking knowledge and giving love. How much ever love you have received, give more than that to other, and you are done. The car has taken a 'U' turn th ...
  9. 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. ...
  10. 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 ...
