  1. Gurudev, (A member of the audience asked a question which was inaudible)

    In my eyes, it is we who create these boundaries.
    Way back in the 80s, if I had to come to Europe I had to take so many visas. One visa for Germany, one for France, one for Italy, one for Switzerland, one for Holland and one for Scandinavia also. So ...

  2. Gurudev, what are the signs of true love? What is its form and how can we recognize it?

    True love is like what was between Lord Rama and Bharat. That which existed between Radha and Lord Krishna, and between Lord Krishna and Arjuna. It is pure, like the love between a mother and her child, between a husband and a wife.
    The love here exis ...
  3. Gurudev, you said that love cannot be limited. Is marriage the end of love?

    (Laughter) Well, I don’t know that. I have never been married. If you are asking in the sense that marriage is the end of love, then that is not how it should be. But if marriage begins with love for each other, it is okay. Even if it blossoms duri ...
  4. Gurudev, all our lives we seek for love in our relationships and yet this love is so temporary. What is ultimate love or the love that never goes away?

    You are made up of the stuff called love. What you are seeking here and there is what you are. Turn inward and repose. When you find that you don’t need love from anybody and you are the source of it, then you start giving. When you start giving in abundan ...
  5. 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 ...
  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
  10. 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 ...
