  1. Gurudev, where does all the knowledge you share come from?

    When you meditate, you get access to a deep inner space from where we download everything. ...
  2. At one level I feel there is nothing more to know, at another level I feel I don’t know anything. How to understand this?

    It’s fantastic! That’s how it is. At one level, the self knows everything and at another level, there is this realization, ‘I don’t know anything, I know very little’. This keeps your consciousness light and innocent. And < ...
  3. Dear Gurudev, you have often said that all knowledge exists in the universe in a subtle form and it just needs to be downloaded. In what form does it exist? Is it energy? Can you please talk about downloading of wisdom?

    You have already said it: it exists as energy. It exists as a multilingual energy, and not just in one language. For downloading it, all that we need to do is to be a little more hollow and empty. Like anyone who wants to go into innovation or a scienti ...
  4. Gurudev, why did Lord Krishna slay Shishupala (an evil king in Mahabharata and a distant cousin of Lord Krishna) when he spoke ill and abused Lord Krishna? Lord Krishna could have chosen to punish him in some other way also. Why did He resort to killing him instead?

    Well, Lord Krishna did many things during His lifetime. Now, how do I say why He did what He did at that time? How would I know this?Every avatar (incarnation of the Divine) has done something or the other during their lifetime. You should ...
  5. Dear Gurudev, when you come before me, then all the highest knowledge like that mentioned in the Ashtavakra Gita, Upanishads, Vedas, Bhagavad Gita, etc., all falls apart. Dispassion crashes into pieces and I become clueless. Why does this happen to me?

    Good, you are lucky! (Laughter) People long for that to happen. Knowledge is like a detergent, it is there to purify you. After applying it, you must also wash it off. You do not say, 'I have bought an expensive soap which I have applied to m ...
  6. Jai Guru Dev, is there any word or sentence which can be said to all age groups and can be used on all occasions? If yes, what is that?

    'Jai Gurudev!' That’s a good thing to say to everybody, at anytime and for anything. Good morning, good night, welcome, goodbye, oh my god! For everything you can say, ‘Jai Gurudev’. And when things don’t happen, even then you can say, ‘Jai Gurud ...
  7. Gurudev, sometimes it becomes a burden to even remember knowledge. How can we take the knowledge we receive from manana (to ponder over again and again) to nidhidhyaasa (complete assimilation of knowledge)?

    Why are you increasing your burden by asking this question too? (Laughter) Just relax and be silent for a while.The goal of knowledge is to transport the mind from its limited understanding and concepts to a more expanded state of aware ...
  8. Gurudev, when I listen to knowledge, I feel the change in my mind. But the change is not firmly established. What should I do?

    You will have to listen to knowledge again and again. Then it will be firmly established in you. But it will take some time.When you dye a piece of cloth, what do you do? You dip the cloth in the dye and dry it. And you repeat the process again and ...
  9. I find it tough to apply knowledge in such situations, when there is no food and no power.

    You do not have to apply knowledge, just be spontaneous.Knowledge is already inbuilt in you. You have to accept situations, live in the present moment and serve people. This is the knowledge. Do not try to apply any more knowledge; it is not needed. ...
  10. Gurudev, in the 9th chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, you have said that there is a difference between Gyaan (knowledge) and information. Please explain.

    Information is something that even a computer can give and take. Filling our mind with information is not Gyaan.If a person reads a lot of books and knows all the information in those books, then we don’t say he is a Gyaani.I ...
