  1. Gurudev, I am able to have an Art of Living experience everywhere, except with my family. Could you please explain why, and how do I come out of it?

    Sometimes, some people at some places push your buttons more than other people. That is your tapasya, your sadhana. Be there, don’t run away, that is where your test is happening. It is a test as well as a practice. You have to endure that. < ...
  2. Gurudev, what is the difference between Shiva Tattva and Krishna consciousness?

    Shiva Tattva is a theory, it has no physical form.
    Krishna is one who imbibed the Shiva Tattva in total, in the human form. Krishna was a historical figure. He lived 5,114 years ago.
    Krishna walked on the planet, but he imbibed the ...
  3. Gurudev, I have been told that a human soul can often take one to two million years to find liberation. Is it true that by doing Kriya and meditation every day, this liberation can be obtained even in one lifetime?

    Everything works with some strange karma. You must lift your eyes and look into this realm.

    There is a beautiful couplet that says, ‘This world has all the wealth, all that is needed, but one who has no karma, cannot get it.’
    So, whe ...

  4. Gurudev, I learnt a lot of good principles here. How to implement this in my everyday life? To be in business I need to be a little aggressive and active. Just meditation won't do.

    Correct! There is no need for mood making. When you’re sitting here, you’re sitting like this (cross legged). When you go to your office, you don’t have to sit like this! When you are in business, you do business.
    You don’t put on your winter coat all ...
  5. Gurudev, can you please talk a little more about the sound/alphabet meditation?

    That is the meditation that we did today, where you can’t go to Ka without Aa. So, you went to the very source where the sound arose, right? What happened at that time? Stillness! The mind became totally still at that moment. Thus, we went to ...
  6. Gurudev, With deep love comes the feeling of losing the person we love. How to overcome it?

    Somewhere love, fear and hatred are all connected, so it is only through wisdom that you can keep the purity of love; not making it turn into hatred or into fear. That is why knowledge, wisdom, and spirituality is essential. It helps to keep both the head ...
  7. Gurudev, in the Gita you have said that God is everywhere, but how can one experience this practically in everyday life?

    See, these are two aspects to knowledge. One is Bodha – the knowledge itself, and the other is Vyavahara – meaning following the knowledge and experiencing it practically.
    You know that in your house, the doors, tables and ch ...
  8. 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 ...
  9. Gurudev, what makes Consciousness acquire a tendency to become outwardly though the inner world is so beautiful?

    Nature has made our senses go outward. The world outside is there for the senses. Beautiful sceneries are there for the eyes, fragrances are for the nose and similar for taste and touch.

    But there is also this mechanism, where the mind can withdraw ...

  10. Gurudev, sometimes I am not able to understand the knowledge given by you. What should I do so that I can get both your love and knowledge?

    Whatever you find difficult to understand, it is not to be understood at all. If it is all going above your head, let it go. Take only what you can understand.
    See, everyone’s capacity to gain knowledge is different, but to be in love, to be in ...
