  1. Gurudev, Is there any maximum limit to how much we can meditate?

  3. Gurudev, we’re told that meditation is relaxation, not concentration. So when we have thoughts during meditation, is it still relaxation?

  8. Gurudev, I was on anti-depressants for many years. I've been off anti-depressants for 2 years. I do my Sudarshan Kriya every day, but my concentration and sleep are not normal, and this affects my work. Sometimes I feel that I was better off on anti-depressants. Is it okay to take them on doctor’s advice if my job is at stake, or should I resist at all cost.

    I wouldn't say resist at all cost, but resist it. And do Yoga. Spend one hour in the morning stretching and balancing your body.
    It was good today (morning yoga session), wasn't it? How many of you enjoyed that? When you do it, concentration improves. ...

    Many times, when you close your eyes, you have the tendency to go into your mental fantasies, or drift off into a dream, or sometimes fall asleep. This is called Mano Rajaya in yogic terminology.

    Mano Rajaya is a state where the mind star ...
