  1. Gurudev, our horoscope is based on our birth time. If the birth time is unknown, does that mean our horoscope is wrong?

    If the timing is correct, interpretation is right. You can never say that it is 100% right. There is a probability of it being 80%-90% correct. And there is always an adrushya (invisible), i.e., an unknown influence. It can happen anytime ...

  2. Gurudev, you spoke about listening to the Anaahat Naad in silence. But if I try to do that, I feel very awkward as if I have some disorder. Once when I told my doctor about this he said that I must be hearing things and that I have some mental illness.

    Relax in the sound that you hear from within. We try to fight with that inner sound, we try and get rid of it. Don’t do that, instead relax with a calm mind in the sound.

    For example, the people in Mumbai and Delhi who have homes near the m ...

  3. Gurudev, in the Bhagavad Gita Lord Krishna says that among the months of the year I am the Margashirsha month (corresponding to the period from the third week of November to the third week of December). Please explain.

    See, in our country, every month of the calendar has been associated with some event and so each month has its own importance. There is also a special month called the Purushottama Maasa (literally meaning the month of Lord Vishnu) that is consid ...

  4. Dear Gurudev, please tell us which is the best place to put our heads when we sleep (North, South, East or West).

    Put your head on the pillow! (laughter)
    North has a magnetic pole, so if you put your head in the north and sleep north-south then the magnetic current that flows from north to south passes through your head to your toes. It can be tiring and ...

  5. Gurudev, the participants aspiring to do the Vedic Wisdom course want to know more about the Gayatri mantra and Sandhyavandanam. Can you please talk about this.

    You know life is three states of consciousness – waking, dreaming and sleeping. When waking state ends and dreaming state begins; when dreaming state ends and sleeping state begins, and when sleeping state ends and waking state begins, at these junction po ...
  6. Gurudev, Where is the Jeeva and the Atma before birth? What is the difference between Jeeva and Atma? How is a Jeeva born, and where does it come from?

    Both are same. Life comes into the body at the time of conception, and sometimes at the time of birth also. The soul enters the body at the time of conception or the time of birth. Sometimes one soul stays up to birth and another soul comes at birth< ...
  7. Gurudev, today you said that truth is hidden between the consonant and the vowel, which is so beautiful. Can you please speak a little more about it?

    Different letters affect different parts of the body. Our body is like a garland of letters, it is called akshara maalika (garland of letters). You are a mala or rosary yourself; different letters affect different centers.

    Sanskrit, the o ...

  8. Can you please tell us about Narayana. Who and what is Narayana?

    Narayana is not a person. Narayana is the consciousness which is present in the human nervous system. Narayana is made up of light; a body that is made up of light. When you become totally hollow and empty, you incorporate that light body wit ...
  9. Gurudev, often we read in the Puranas of Indra committing some sin. We never read of Agni, or Varuna, or Vayu, or any of the other Gods committing sin. There must be some significance or some learning from this as well, just like the story of Ganesha. Could you please explain the spiritual meaning of this?

    Indra is the mob psychology. What we call mob mentality?
    A group has a mind of its own. That group mind is called Indra.

    Indra is supposed to have one thousand eyes. One thousand eyes do not mean that somebody has eyes ...

  10. Gurudev, yesterday you said that Lord Krishna is Kartikeya among the Devas. Please tell us a little about Kartikeya.

    When the five elements governed by Lord Shiva (Panch Mahabhoota - Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether) united with Shakti (Pure Consciousness), Lord Kartikeya was born.
    Shiva is called PanchaananaLord with five he ...
