  2. Gurudev, you ask us to be dispassionate. How can I be dispassionate about you? I love you and the attachment keeps growing every day.

    If this attachment helps you to move away from other unwanted things, then it is okay. If it gives you a focus, it is fine. But if it is causing jealousy, anger, greed and all those negative emotions, you better work on yourself.

  3. Gurudev, when we sit for meditation, some thoughts pass by just like clouds, but there are others that make us go on such a long trip. Suddenly I realized I am on a trip. What is the mechanism that sends you off on that long trip, and why can they not all pass by like clouds?

  8. Dear Gurudev, scientific convention says that time is changing and space is constant. Ancient texts say that time is constant and space is changing. Can you explain this phenomenon?

  9. Dear Gurudev, you spoke so beautifully about dispassion and being devoid of feverishness, but when you are around, all this knowledge goes out of the window and there is only feverishness.
