  3. Gurudev, are bodily diseases or disorders linked to our karmas?

    Yes, some of them are linked, but not all. Some are linked to your actions of the past, and some are a result of your own wrong deeds that you have done now. That is why it is called Prajnapradha (a wrong deed committed despite having the knowledge ...
  4. Dear Gurudev, whenever we ask our teachers about Karma (doership), they reply, 'Gurudev says that it is a complicated play'. We want to know more about this complicated play.

    Karma is very complex.

  7. Gurudev, few days back you were discussing about Maya (Illusion) and I thought about my mother-in-law. God has given her everything. She has a nice house, servants, car and a daughter-in- law like me. But despite of all this her face is always serious grim. And surprisingly her name is also Maya. Now I know what is Maya. Please let me know how to get liberated from Maya. (Laughter)

    I will first ask ‘Maya’ (referring here to the mother-in-law) and then let you know! (Laughter) Maybe she also wants freedom from someone. Liberation is not one sided. See, even your mother has scolded you at many times, is it not so? There isn’t a ...
  8. Gurudev, do thoughts and feelings affect our Karma (actions)? Like it is said in Sri Ramcharitmanas ’Jaki rahi bhavna jaisi, prabhu murat dekhi tin taisi’ (Meaning: In whichever way one chooses to perceive the Lord, in that very form the Lord appears to him).
