  1. Gurudev, Buddhists say they do not believe in God. Even Lord Buddha said that we must not worship idols. Now He too was an enlightened being, so what did he mean by that?

    Lord Buddha never talked about God. He never really entertained any discussion on God. What He said was – the first thing is to realize that there is misery. People keep denying there is misery, many don’t even recognize it. Many a time if you talk to a si ...
  2. Gurudev, a few days back I saw you wearing glares. Then I thought that to shield us from the harsh sunlight of life, you have given us the goggle of Sudarshan Kriya. I want to know when I can wear the hat of enlightenment.

    Enlightenment is not like some hat, that you can wear when you like and take off when you like. Neither is it like the hair on your head that you can trim and cut off when it grows too long. It is the glow of the light within you which can never diminish ...
  3. Gurudev, it is said that the one who knows (the Truth) never says it and the one who speaks about it does not really know. Now that I know this, if somebody asks me whether I’m enlightened or not, what should I say? Or not say?

  7. Gurudev, is the desire to become enlightened an impediment to enlightenment? Is the desire to be enlightened a bad thing?

  8. Gurudev, Why is India the favorite destination for enlightened masters? Is there some secret in the land?

    Well, it is not that only India had masters. No!

    The word California comes from a Rishi called Kapila Rishi. He was the previous incarnation of Lord Krishna. He was born in California, and lived there for a long time. The place was called Kapila ...

  9. Enlightenment

    Enlightenment is beyond seasons like the evergreen coconut tree. Sometimes the question comes up "What's the use of all these courses? Your behavior has not changed!" The Knowledge acquired by a human being cannot be measured or judged by e ...
  10. Impression And Expression

    Do not make an effort to impress others, or to express yourself. Your effort to express yourself becomes an impediment. Your effort to impress someone also becomes futile. If you do not try to impress, expression comes naturally. When you come from the se ...
