  3. Gurudev, I have become free from materialistic things, desires and feverishness to a great extent, but when it comes to you, my thirst keeps increasing. What is the solution for this?

  4. Gurudev, like you said what we want in life we should know that we already have it. Can I feel the same for a person in my life whom I want?

  7. Gurudev, If man has to ask for one thing in life, what should he ask for?

    Why should he ask only for one thing? He should ask for as many things as he wants. When he is thirsty he should ask for water, if he is going to do bhastrika before that he should ask for tissue paper. He should ask for food when he is hungry. Why should ...
  8. Gurudev, If I am Brahman, if I am the eternal presence, if I am totally free from inside, if I am the pure consciousness, why is it that I am not able to know that or experience that?
