  1. Gurudev, Guruji what is the best technique for cultivating self love. I find it easier to kinder to others than to myself. When I start to praise myself and feel joyous, I come into contact with others who are not happy and I feel guilty for feeling happy.

    See, self is love. You think you don’t love yourself and then you try to love yourself and that is the biggest blunder. Who says you don’t love yourself? It is just a concept when you think you don’t love yourself, and it seems to be very real. Just relax ...
  2. Gurudev, Jai Gurudev, personally I have a hard time connecting to concepts like the Divine or Supreme Consciousness or God. Can agnostic or atheist become an Art of Living teacher?

    Definitely, don’t worry as long as you acknowledge there is form and there is formless and the world is an interplay of form and formless. You did this meditation, did you all enjoy? Was it good? You don’t have to see God with a nose, with hair, with a be ...
  3. Gurudev, do you ever get concerned about some of your followers that get too fanatical about being close to you? It seems to me that they’re willing to pass on their enlightenment in order to be with you.

    Listen, now focus on yourself. Why do you focus on what others do? There are so many people that do so many things in the world. It’s my headache and their headache, now why do you want to make that as your headache also? I keep telling them don’t bow dow ...
  4. Gurudev, in the discourses that we saw on advanced course you talked about emotions in different parts of the body. When I go back home if I feel a strong emotion in my body like greed what can I do to move it out of the system?

    Emotions come and go, why you have to bother so much. Even if I tell you something, when the emotions come you will forget all about that. It’s useless to be preparing for it. You know they just come and they go, just relax. I don’t want to give you sugges ...
  5. Gurudev, at work I am told I am not as aggressive as my other colleagues. You ask us to relax. Sometimes when I relax my mind in the midst of action, I am not perceived to be as sharp or smart as others at work. What to do?

    Sometimes sure you show some aggressiveness, you can act. See if you’re playing a part in a movie or in a theatre you can’t say I can’t do this, I can’t do that. If the act demands you to be a villain you have to act like a villain but not be a villain. Do ...
  6. Gurudev, is daily yoga enough exercise to keep the body and mind healthy?

    I think so. It is okay you can do some treadmill, some other hard exercise also. I am for exercise; I used to do quite a bit now I don’t do as much. ...
  7. Gurudev, I am hoping to have children one day. Can you provide prenatal advice to expecting and wanting to be expecting mothers? What should we follow in terms of our spiritual routine, our food, and lifestyle?

    Just don’t see horror movies, the crime movies. Don’t see them; especially pregnant women should keep their mind relaxed and happier, more in state of contentment rather than getting stressed and having the shocks of their life watching horror movies. What ...
