  1. What is enlightenment? How does a regular person find out if someone is enlightened?

    It cannot be said in words, it has to be felt. You cannot describe love. You can’t say that love is endorphins or oxytocin getting produced in your body, it is something that only the heart can know; your existence can feel something different.

  2. How can we attain this altered state of consciousness (enlightenment)?

    This is why we say, 'Do meditation'.
    Why do we sing? So that there is activity in the right brain. And why do we discuss knowledge and logical things? So that there is activity in the left brain as well. That is why we have kept both, logic a ...

  3. Gurudev, if I am enlightened, would I still continue to do my work;?

    Yes, absolutely. You have to be very ordinary only. If you think that you are someone very special, then that is not enlightenment.

  4. Gurudev, in the world there are many paths to enlightenment. Please tell me the definitive way to be free.

    That's what I am doing, I think! I thought I am just telling you the definite way to be free! What is bothering you now? <br>
    Read this book '<i>An Intimate Note To A Sincere Seeker</i>'. When you feel bothered, when t ...

  5. Gurudev, when we are very happy in seva, sadhana and satsang, then why do we desire enlightenment? Is there something beyond birth and death?

    One who doesn't want happiness, he attains moksha. One who doesn't want moksha he attains love. When there is no longing for happiness then there is moksha.
    Why do people commit suicide? Because they are longing for happiness. Whe ...
  6. Gurudev, I have heard that whenever a Brahmajnani (an enlightened soul who is established in Self-knowledge) appears on Earth, the collective consciousness of the entire humanity gets increased. How can we understand this?

  7. Gurudev, Buddhists say they do not believe in God. Even Lord Buddha said that we must not worship idols. Now He too was an enlightened being, so what did he mean by that?

    Lord Buddha never talked about God. He never really entertained any discussion on God. What He said was – the first thing is to realize that there is misery. People keep denying there is misery, many don’t even recognize it. Many a time if you talk to a si ...
  8. Gurudev, a few days back I saw you wearing glares. Then I thought that to shield us from the harsh sunlight of life, you have given us the goggle of Sudarshan Kriya. I want to know when I can wear the hat of enlightenment.

    Enlightenment is not like some hat, that you can wear when you like and take off when you like. Neither is it like the hair on your head that you can trim and cut off when it grows too long. It is the glow of the light within you which can never diminish ...
  9. Gurudev, it is said that the one who knows (the Truth) never says it and the one who speaks about it does not really know. Now that I know this, if somebody asks me whether I’m enlightened or not, what should I say? Or not say?

    It is easy to say ‘No’ rather than say ‘Yes’. So choose according to your time availability. Because, if a person cannot feel it without your saying yes or no, they are not going to feel it even after you say yes or no. If someone says, ‘Are the lights swi ...
