Gurudev, I have been doing meditation since a long time. During a recent meditation, you appeared and gave me a prasad. My eyes were closed, but you were seeing everything. My question is, was it you, or was it God in your form?A sadhak (seeker) has many experiences in his life. There is no need to probe into it. Just move on.
Yesterday's experience was yesterday’s; today's experience is for today, and tomorrow you will have a new experience.

Gurudev, My dear Gurudev, whenever I look into my heart I find you there. You have hooked me, booked me and cooked me. Please tell me what dish you are trying to make out of me.Listen! You are wonderful, you are so complete and that is how you could feel that intense emotion.

Then I will love you.’

Gurudev, it is said on the path one should drop everything and be free of purpose or goals. I am a busy executive, without a purpose how can I take responsibility?See there are two things Pravittri and Nivritti. Do not mix the two.
There are two attitudes that we have to pay attention to. One is, when you go inward (Nivritti) you think that everyt ...
Gurudev, But she doesn’t understand. She does not do Kriya either. Even if I force her, she doesn’t do Kriya. Please take care of both my father and mother.Now you have given your work to me!
