  1. Gurudev, in the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna tells Arjuna that ‘everyone is equally dear to Me’. But then a little later He tells Arjuna, ‘you are most dear to Me’. How is this contradiction possible?

    There is a lot of contradiction throughout the Bhagavad Gita at every step, in every chapter. That is why Arjuna at one point tells Lord Krishna, ‘O Lord! Tell me one way only (towards freedom from misery). Sometimes you suggest that Bhakti Yoga (th ...
  2. Gurudev, what is Brahma Gyaan?

    This is Brahma Gyaan (Supreme Knowledge). All this that we are talking about is Brahma Gyaan. Whatever you say has no existence, meaning it does not exist forever. Truth is that which transcends time - past, present, future. ...
  3. Dear Gurudev, how do we defend our civil and democratic rights without using violence? How to create a sense of belongingness in the society where the government is reinforcing polarization and using a divide and rule policy?

  4. Gurudev, in the Ashtavakra Gita it is said, ‘Do not engage in doership as you are not the doer. And the Gita says that when you are established in your Self, you have a choice. How do we have a choice when we are not the doer?

    Knowledge has many levels. When you are not the doer, you are also not the one who will experience the fruits of karma. And when you are not the one who experiences the fruits of karma, where is the question of any choice then? Do you understand? It i ...
  5. Dear Gurudev, can you please explain how to overcome attachment, and what to do about the attachment for you? These days it has become very painful.

    You cannot hide love. Nor can you express it fully. This has been the story of love since ages. When there is love, it oozes out and you see it in your eyes, and in your actions. Love can never be hidden, and yet it can never be expressed fully. However mu ...
  6. Gurudev, you said that 2012 was going to be the year of 'Nanda' (bliss). How come it was such a hard year?

    The year of Nanda is not yet over, it will be over end of March.There are still three months more. You know, it is good when things churn inside you, then you wake up. It is not that it happens only in the outside world, but even in the sp ...
  7. You said truth is contradictory. Can you give us an easy way to understand this?

    Milk is good and milk is bad. Milk is good if you drink one glass, bad if you drink two litres. Got it?! If you come to Bad Antogast from Freudenstadt, you have to go straight down and turn to your right. But from Oppenau, you have to go straight ...
  8. Gurudev, in your book titled Living the Mystery of Life, you have said, 'Work in this world but do not allow it to enter your head.' Can you please explain this once again. Is it the same thing as dispassion?

    This is exactly what we did now in meditation. When the eyes are open, we see the scenery, and when we close our eyes and our mind then there is another world. Did you notice this? So meditation is the way. See, suppose you are sitting and t ...

  10. Gurudev, even though there is no difference between Lord Vishu and Lord Shiva, who originated from whom? The Vishnu Purana glorifies Lord Vishnu and the Shiva Purana glorifies Lord Shiva.

    When you think, who originated from whom, you are thinking on linear terms. But truth is not linear, it is spherical. That is why this is also true and that is also true. From which side you see, that is where it comes from. If you ...
