  2. Gurudev, should we protect our relationships at the stake of our self-respect?

    Look, I am not going to be caught in this question. You are thinking something else, asking some other question, I will give an answer, you will apply it directly or indirectly and then you will say Guruji it was you who said it. No! Self-respect is one th ...
  3. Gurudev, does bearing everything mean contentment and acceptance?

  9. Gurudev, it is said that we must always think positive but my mind always turns negative. How to handle this?

    Make your body pure. Take some ‘Triphala churna’ around two to three times a week. If your digestive system is clean, your mind will also work properly. If you have constipation, your mind goes haywire. Purity of the body, by taking triphala, atleast once ...
