  1. Gurudev, if there is one consciousness ruling, then why are some things said to be good, and some are bad?

    See, good and bad are always relative. There is nothing in the absolute. If you go in space, there is no east, west, north or south. East, west, north, south are there when you are on earth. It is relative. If you ask me whether vitamins are good or ...
  2. Gurudev, is it true that Mira Bai drank poison in the name of Lord Krishna and it did not harm her? What is the meaning of this?

    Yes. There are many miracles which occur in the world and this is one such. You don’t try that. You can call yourself Mira Bai, but don’t try drinking poison. That means that the consciousness which makes the body grow – the love and light in her was so m ...
  3. Gurudev, I am not able to do anything consistently. How can I develop this quality in me?

    This you need to realize for yourself. How do you say that you cannot do anything consistently? Why do you label yourself like that? First you should admit that you do not truly know yourself. When you do not know yourself, you do not know how ...
  4. Gurudev, in the yajnas, the Rishis were invoked. What is the exact process? How come the people who existed so long ago still exist today?

    You know consciousness never dies; the mind never dies! Nothing ever dies. It only changes form. Matter can neither be created nor destroyed. So is the same with energy. In the consciousness, the Rishi energies are present. It is like, you ...

  6. Gurudev, it is said that Shankaracharya had experienced the pleasures of life by entering into the body of a king. How then could he be considered celibate? Is celibacy (Brahmacharya) of the body or of the mind?

    It is of consciousness; the quality of consciousness is celibacy. Brahma means infinity, and charya means to move. Moving into the infinity is Brahmacharya (celibacy). Identifying with the infinity is really what Brah ...
  7. Gurudev, after introspecting on the questions, ‘Who am I? Where am I?’ I realize that I am nowhere, and everywhere, as empty space. How to stay in this pure consciousness without drifting to body consciousness?

    Trying to stay out of body consciousness is an effort. Don’t make such efforts. As you become well established in knowledge, it will automatically happen. As the vasanas (impressions) become less and wane away, it becomes much clearer to you. And y ...
  8. Gurudev, recently there has been a discovery of something called the Higgs-Boson particle. Is it leading scientists towards pure consciousness?

    I visited the institute CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) where they found the God particle. We presented them with the book, Yoga Vasishta, and some meditation CDs. In fact, the head of that institution came and spoke at our Wor ...
  9. Gurudev, the way today’s TV serials depict characters like Mahadev, Parvati, Jalandhar, etc., is it realistic? Please shed some light on this.

    Well, it does not quite appeal to me either. They show Parvati (the consort of Lord Shiva and form of Mother Divine) as someone who keeps getting angry, keeps getting upset so easily and keeps yelling every now and then. These are not divine qualities ...
