  1. Gurudev, a lot of people are caught in the trap of ‘shaniti’ and ‘saade saati’ (Inauspicious Planetary effects). What message would you like to convey to them?

    This is true. Planets do affect us. However, for ‘Sadhaks’ (People on the Spiritual path), the effect is minimum. And for devotees, the effect is negligible. The planets will have very little effect. That is why, when you do sadhana, you sing ‘Om Namah Shi ...
  2. Gurudev, I spread love everywhere, but I do not get love in return. Is it because of my karmas?

    Don’t think that you don’t receive love. It will come. It might be a little late but it will come back to you. You just relax! ...
  3. Gurudev, there has always been a conflict between spirituality and science.

    Not at all. Where is the conflict between Spirituality and Science? Spirituality begins where Science ends. The conflict hasn’t been in our country. It has only been in the western countries, where religions were against science, therefore these areas had ...
  4. Gurudev, between Krishna and Arjuna, Arjuna used to question Krishna again and again. But there are certain devotees who never ask a question. What kind of devotees do you prefer?

    I like all types. I collect specimens of all types. In English, it is called, ‘assorted nuts’. I have people of all kinds close to me and not just one type. ...
  5. Gurudev, is there a regulator of this world or is it self-moving?

    What do you feel? I leave this question to you. Keep thinking about it. Is there a controller of this world or is it moving on its own? Keep thinking about it. Let us see. This thinking is called reasoning. This reasoning leads to knowledge of the self. Th ...
  6. Gurudev, these days children are so attracted to television.

    Only kids? Even the elders are so attracted to television! ...
  7. Gurudev, I get very angry. If anything goes even slightly against my wishes, I get extremely angry. For this reason, no one wants to stay near me. I get so lonely at times, that sometimes I feel like committing suicide. How do I get past this?

    No, never take such a step. In case you feel like committing suicide, take my permission first. I’ll tell you where to jump from and when to jump! Otherwise, you’ll be left nowhere. You will be hanging in between, neither in this world, nor the other. If y ...
  8. Gurudev, the point 'Accept people, objects and situations as they are' appears to be a compromise.

    No, don't compromise. First accept, and once the mind is at peace, then fight. If you feel like fighting, then fight. And if you want to slap someone, slap with a smile; not with anger - that makes you weak. When you hit with a smile, you will hit with a l ...
  9. Gurudev, why does it appear that it is always truth that is in trouble? Untruth and falsehood are never in trouble, only truth is bothered.

    Neither truth nor falsehood will be troubled. Truth is there, and those who walk the path of truth are troubled, or those who speak lies are happy. It is not so! It might seem that one who walks the path of untruth lives like a king. This is only for a cou ...
  10. Gurudev, there is something wrong happening in front of us, but we are unable to do anything. What to do?

    A lot of times when something wrong happens, one cannot do anything alone, but together something can be done - as a group (sangha) it will be possible. If as a group also it is not possible, you can at least pray, 'This person is doing wrong, bless him wi ...
