  1. Gurudev, Is this the right place for me? There is no way back to normal life. Even my husband who loves me couldn’t accept my activities in The Art of Living. He’s afraid that I’m going mad!

    Balance things. Don’t scare anybody. You need to balance life. Make people understand.
    This (The Art of Living) is not abnormal, this is a normal life; to be happy, to be centered and to spread the message of joy and happiness. We need to improv ...
  2. Gurudev, Why am I here? Why did I do this course? Am I normal?

    There are many standards of normality. From a lower standard, you may not be normal. From a higher standard you are normal. If from an even higher standard again, if you are not normal, then you need to be going up much more. So what do you mean by normal? ...
  3. Gurudev, Is it okay to mix different yoga techniques? Or should we find one way.

    No, don’t mix them, it becomes a hotch-potch. You have on your platter, such a wonderful program. All based on a single line of thought, a philosophy which is ancient yet profound, and still modern. So just follow one way. That’s the best.

    I’m saying t ...

  4. 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. ...
  5. Knowledge And Faith

     In science you have knowledge first, and then faith follows. In spirituality, faith comes first, and then Knowledge follows. For example, the knowledge that pesticides and chemical fertilizers are good for plants came through science, and people had fait ...
  6. 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 ...
  7. Gurudev, you have always taken care of me. I have only one wish: For as long as I am in this body and in my other births to come, please make me your disciple and liberate me. Show me the truth so that I can liberate others too.

    Recently, a saint came to see me in Rishikesh, and in our congregation he said a beautiful thing. He said, 'One who has learnt in this school will stay. One who has not learnt only will leave'.
    Usually, in a school, if you have learnt and you ...

  8. Dear Gurudev, how can I devote more time to my spiritual growth when I am financially struggling?

    You don't have to devote more time, whatever little time you devote is good enough. Once or twice a year, a few days for an Advance Meditation Course is good enough. You don't have to go for one course after another for the whole year. If you do ...

  9. How to get rid of my tendency to control everything everywhere and every time?

    You can control small things, that is why you have this illusion (that you are in control). Just try to control the big things: stop the war in Iraq, or stop the war in Syria.

    A couple came to meet me and they were talki ...

  10. Gurudev, when death is the ultimate truth of life, then why does one take the guidance of astrology?

    Are you asking this for yourself or for somebody else? If you are asking for yourself then just become aware that all of us are going to die, for sure. The important thing is that while we live, we shall be happy and have fun in all that we do.
    While ...
