  1. Dear Gurudev, when we are on this path, to what extent can we hear knowledge from other Gurus?

    I would say, respect everybody. There is only one knowledge and that is available to you. But if you go on shopping here and there, you will get in to more confusion. We say, ‘Do So Hum.’
    Someone else will say, ‘No! So Hum is not correct ...
  2. Dear Gurudev, when we meditate we experience such bliss, how can that state continue with or without meditation?

    With knowledge and with dispassion. When you see the whole world is a dream, the meditative state remains in activity also. But do not make a mood out of it; you should not do mood making. Live life naturally, as everyone else lives; simple, natural. Do no ...
  3. Dear Guruji, when I feel intense love or devotion I lose my awareness. When I am aware I lose the intensity of devotion. How do I retain both, intensity and awareness?

    I think you have too much free time to think and see what is happening. Just get busy, do Karma Yoga (the path of action). When you are engaged in seva, you don’t sit and think ‘Oh, how am I feeling? How am I not feeling?’ Feelings are all part of ...
  4. Gurudev, I read and hear a lot of knowledge, but almost immediately forget what I heard. What do I do?

    Don’t worry; I will keep talking to you. So even if you forget a hundred times, never mind, I have enough patience. I keep telling the same things.
    Those who are talking to you are also in the same boat. Many people here, they say, but they too live f ...
  5. Gurudev, please give us Gyaan (knowledge)?

    For that you have to ask questions. Knowledge means you have to pull it out. ...
  6. Gurudev, I have some difficulties applying the AOL principles and values at work. I understand them and can see how to apply them to my private life, but as soon as I go to work, I find it difficult to reconcile business values and The Art of Living philosophy. Can you give me some examples of how I can apply these principles?

    Principles get applied spontaneously and naturally, you do not have to make an effort to apply any principles.
    What principles? Accept people as they are – when it is already in the back of the mind you will start doing it automatically. ...
  7. How can I get purer? Even though I am doing Sadhana, Satsang and Seva, I do not feel very pure. When I see people who are arrogant, rude and proud, especially Art of Living people, I feel very sad. How do I get rid of this?

    You are saying two things. One you are saying that others are arrogant, others are not okay; and the other thing you are saying is you are not okay. This is just mirroring; you are mirroring in both sides.
    I would say if you feel that you are impure, ...
  8. Whenever I sit for Sadhana, my mind wanders here and there. What should I do to control the mind?

    Listen, consider your life itself as your Sadhana. Think of your whole life as your Sadhana.
    Where does the mind wander? It goes wherever it finds fulfillment. So observe the next time this happens, ‘Is my mind wandering to where I find fulfillment?’ ...
  9. Gurudev, do we lose knowledge just like how we gather and understand it?

    Knowledge cannot be lost completely. On acquiring total knowledge, it is impossible to lose it. But when someone gains only partial knowledge then they may go back and forth in their understanding. ...
