  1. How can a person build up faith? Or is it a talent with which one is born with?

    You cannot build up faith, you should simply become aware of your doubts and drop them. When you drop your doubts, faith is already there.

  3. Do animals have a mind? How come they don’t have any mental issues?

    Animals do have a mind, they do have the feelings.
    There was an article on how a leopard helped a baby monkey survive, and how a dog was helped by a dolphin. These are such many amazing things.
    Usually we use the phrase ‘fighting like dogs and ...

  4. Are you right or left handed?

    I handle everything in the right manner. I suppose I don’t leave anything, so there is nothing left behind. So there’s nothing left and I suppose I’m right.

    This like going to a pharmacy and asking, ‘What is the best medicine you can give me?’
    There is not just one thing, whatever you need, you can get everything here. Why should I limit myself to one advice for everybody? If someone is leaning to left I ...

  6. At what point in creation do things that are alive get souls? I am referring to mosquitoes, trees, bacteria, cells, and so on.

    Soul is in everything, right from an ant to bacteria; it is there everywhere. But a mature soul enters into your system at a particular stage, either during conception or in the fourth or fifth month, or even at the time of birth. These are the three po ...

    A ‘yes mind’ always goes with wisdom, not foolishness.

  8. Is true surrender god given? How can human beings try to achieve it?

    For god’s sake, don’t try to surrender. I think this word surrender has been misused so many times that it is scary. So I would say keep that word away somewhere; put it in the lake if you want. Just be natural, simple and don’t try to surr ...

    No, there is nothing wrong, but if it’s too noisy then it’s too hard on the nervous system. Jazz, rock music, etc., activates the first chakra, so it takes you out of inertia, no doubt. But it can also be very jarring if you’re more subtle, and if your ner ...
