Tell me, why do want to focus?

I am from the Research field. I find it very difficult to invent new things and innovate. What advice can you give to researchers like me so that we can enhance our creative talent?You should meditate regularly. Meditation and Vairagya (dispassion) will really help in this.
Every once in a while, you should just sit back and realize that this entire world is just like a dream. This entire world will come to an end one day ...
Dear Gurudev, ancient India has been witness to many age old ancient traditions which are now extinct. One such tradition is the Devdasi tradition. This tradition has given the world the traditional Indian dance forms, like Bharatanatyam, Odissi, etc. The practitioner of Indian classical dance forms would know that these forms are yoga (here implying the union) of body, mind and soul. There seems to be a connection between art forms and spirituality in India. Can you please talk a bit about that?Yes of course. Art, dance, music and spirituality are connected.

Gurudev, I love my soul mate so much, that I fear that it does not leave much room for me to love the Divine.
I have no experience of a soul mate.

Many people get the clarity in their mind from a young age of their passion to become doctors, engineers, teachers, etc., and they stick to it. Unfortunately I do not feel that way. I am not young anymore and this lack of direction scares me. What can I do?No, don't worry. Life is all designed.
If you don’t have the clarity of what you want to do, then meditate and go by your intuition.
I tell you, all professions are the same. People of no profession are happy. Look at doctors they are so miserabl ...
Gurudev, how to live in this so called professional world? I find myself lonely and secluded when I feel people are friendly only when they need me. Today professionalism means no love and no true smile. What to do?At least you give them. If they don’t have, you have it. So you can shine there like the moon. ...
No! You can create these values at your workplace.
Don’t worry, stand up and keep talking to people. For a couple of days, they may think you are crazy and you are talking something crazy, never mind! You continue talking. They will start realizing an ...
