  1. Gurudev, often in meditation I find that I go to places I have never been to and meet people I have never met. I often also get the Déjà vu effect (the feeling or experience of having been in a place or event before in time). What do I do?

    Yes, all this is fine and it is correct. There is nothing wrong about it. These are all the latent impressions in your mind. Do not worry too much about all this. It is possible that during meditation, the latent impressions may come out. ...
  2. When the purpose of life is to realize that we are part of the Supreme Consciousness and to ultimately merge with the Divine, then why did God divide Himself into many souls at the beginning?

    Well, God has His own logic and His own ways. What is the point of you asking this question now? It is too late! (Laughter) You know, you can think about it this way: if only air had different colours. In the olden days, you had these Shantara ...
  3. Gurudev, many books have been written about positive thinking. What is the difference between positive thinking and Sankalpa (a firm resolve or pledge)?

    Sankalpa is a thought or wish, with which there is no feverishness attached. When you desire without feverishness for something, then it becomes a Sankalpa. ...
  4. Gurudev, have you ever wanted to become someone else or experience their life just for a day? If you have a choice now, would you want to become a Guru again?

    I am nobody and everybody at the same time. So I do not have to think about changing a role or assuming a role. ...
  5. Gurudev, if I experience sorrow without any reason, then how can I be free of it? What kind of sorrow is this and why does one experience it?

    When you do not find enjoyment in anything, then you experience such sorrow and feel dejected. This is a kind of obstacle on the path. That is why, when you find joy in sadhana, seva and satsang then all such kinds of sorrow and dejection simply disappears ...
  6. 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 ...
  7. Gurudev, my mind is very disturbed and I am not able to find a way out. What should I do? Where should I put my focus so that I can walk the path with conviction?

    Stop worrying. Just sit and relax. All your sorrow and sins will get washed away with Gaan (Satsang or singing devotional songs), Jnana (knowledge) and Dhyana (meditation). How many people here feel fresh after the Satsang? (Ma ...
  8. Gurudev, how can I gain control over fear?

    This is what we were discussing just now. It is like asking how can you control or get rid of your own shadow. How will you trap your shadow? Catch hold of your own neck, not your shadow. Who tries to catch a shadow? When you turn away from the Light ...
  9. Gurudev, you have said that a devotee never questions anything (meaning a devotee’s total faith is in the Divine). But many questions arise in my mind. Does this mean that there is a lack of devotion in me?

    This you need to figure out for yourself. Do you feel that there is a lack of devotion in you? If you feel there is a lack, then there is a lack. If you are feeling hungry, how can I tell, whether you are hungry or not? Will you come and ask me, ‘Guru ...
