  1. Gurudev, in the Mahabharata, what was the significance of Lord Hanumana being present on the chariot of Arjuna?

    Well, in those days they used some flag, like how every political party uses some flag today. The Congress party uses a flag with the ‘palm’ symbol, another party uses ‘lotus flower’ symbol. Like that in ancient days they used Hanumana because it is a sign ...
  2. It has been said that this world is not real but an illusion of the mind. With this perspective, how do we view Lord Krishna and his teachings in the Bhagavad Gita? Were they also an illusion?

    Is this question real or an illusion, first tell me? If the question is real, answer will be real. If the question is an illusion then everything is an illusion. Your spirit of enquiry is also an illusion, then why should an answer be given for it. Go ...
  3. How to balance between practical life and dreams? From dreams there is a desire to get more, while practical life makes us realistic.

    Yes, there should be a harmony between dreams and practical life. You might have seen the event Taalninaad that happened in Solapur yesterday. Earlier, people used to say that it would be very difficult for three thousand people to play (tabla) togeth ...
  4. Gurudev, it is said, slow and steady wins the race, but doesn't feel as an appropriate lesson in today's world. What should be today's version?

    Be steady inside and run fast. Instead, if you are slow in walking and unsteady inside, it is no good. Be steady inside, and run fast outside. In fact, people do the other way around. They move very slowly outside, but they think too fast. Inside, they are ...
  5. Gurudev, those who have found their guru in this birth, if for any reason they are unable to attain mukti, are they able to find their guru in the next life time or do they have to wander aimlessly?

    No, no! Arjun asked this very same question, 'What if I am unable to walk this path of yoga in this lifetime?' So Krishna answered, ‘Nahi Kalyana Krit Kaschit Durgatim Taata Gachchati’ - One who performs noble acts will never go down, will never be mi ...
  6. If we are insignificant, if we are nothing, how does it matter what we do?

    It does matter. When you are insignificant, you also do nothing, and then there is bliss. But the moment you do something, it is going to bring you the result. If you overeat, you may have to call a doctor. You have indigestion, and then you have ...
  7. Gurudev, what is right, what is wrong, how does one decide? Please share an easy trick for this.

    There is a very simple definition to know what is good and what is bad. 1. That which you do not want others to do to you is bad and that which you want others to do to you and you do to others is good. 2. That which gives you short term joy and long ter ...
  8. Gurudev, in Uttarakhand there is a tradition of Devi and Devatas manifesting in people. Is that true?

    Yes, it is true, but many times their mind also gets entangled. That is why, unless that person is a saadhak, who has gone deep within, you cannot say that he is channeling the Devata's voice completely. Devata's voice will be there and also partly his ...
  9. How can a person decide his goal irrespective of his surroundings?

    For a while, just sit by yourself and think. Keep all other things aside. See, what is it that you want? Ask yourself, ‘what is it that I want?’ And then whatever goal comes up, hold on to that. Of course, whenever you want to take up a vision, a goal, a m ...
  10. Dearest Guruji, what are the signs that I am growing on the path? I did my first course 10 years back. I have done 10 advanced courses and I am a teacher. However, I still get angry. Sometimes I feel people who don’t do any practices are better when compared to my behavior. Please guide.

    You got it all wrong. You think that just meditation is going to do it all for you. You are just enjoying meditation. Why would you get upset if you are deeply soaked in knowledge? You think keeping quiet for sometime is going to do everything f ...
