  1. Gurudev, will you help me become a healer? I want to help people.

    Yes, but you should not make it a profession. You shouldn’t say, 'Okay, I am going to heal you, but you have to give me some money'.
    You know, with that type of healers, the healing does not work. It may appear to work for a little while but really it ...
  2. Gurudev, I have been a follower of the Radhaswami tradition for a very long time. In my desire to meet you, I attended the Happiness program and learnt the Sudarshan Kriya. Now I feel guilty that I am not doing something wrong. Can I follow two different spiritual traditions together?

    There is no need to feel guilty at all. See, you started following a particular spiritual tradition sincerely and did a lot of good service there, as a result of that you got the gift of coming to this tradition. But once you are practicing the meditati ...

  3. Dear Gurudev, in my daily life I catch myself breathing very slowly and deeply. In this state it is hard for me to do physical work, or get connected to the situation in hand. Please advice.

    Do some yoga and do some exercises. Very shallow breath is good while you’re meditating but not while you’re in activity.

  4. How do we know what our capabilities are and how can we enhance them?

    See, sometimes we become aware of our own capabilities, and sometimes we come to know about them when someone else speaks about them, or when we hear about it from some third person.
    For quite some time, Lord Hanuman was not aware of his strengths to ...

  5. Gurudev, I happened to meet an American diplomat who has been on the spiritual path for 40-45 years. He said that some saints have visions of a kingdom of God, which is blue. Millions of souls are hovering around to get inside the kingdom of God, but that is possible only through a master. I just wanted to know whether all this is true.

    In the Gita also it is said that, among the millions, only few will walk the path, and amongst the few who walk the path, only a few will come to know me well.

    Among these 8.4 million types of species on the planet, human species is only one. Af ...

  6. Gurudev, there are so many people who come on the path and then leave. Why does that happen? They are so involved and suddenly they stop coming.

    How many people have done that? There would be just a few, and there could be various reasons.
    Some people come on the path like going to a restaurant. After you eat in a restaurant, you don’t think about the restaurant for many hours, right? So they ...
  7. Gurudev, please explain why there are so many paths for spirituality. How can I be sure of which one to choose?

    It is like asking, there are so many people, how do I know whom should I choose as a life partner. Listen to your heart. When your heart says this is right for me, then just walk in that. Not out of greed. ...
  8. Yoga Vasistha talks a lot about self-effort and you tell us to relax. I am unable to figure out what to apply when. In spirituality, when to do self-effort and when to relax?

    There are two things, Pravritti and Nivritti (action and relaxation).
    When you are in action, effort is needed and when you are in relaxation effortlessness is needed. They go hand in hand. But we do it the other way around. When we are ...

  10. Gurudev, how can I intensify and speed up my spiritual quest? Is it possible to bring it on the fast track?

    Just wanting to be on fast track is itself is good enough. It means you are already there. The fact that there is passion and desire to grow spiritually is what makes a big difference. ...
