  1. Gurudev, in the Bible Christ says, ‘I am the only way’. The Koran says that it is the only way, and the Gita also says ‘Mam ekam sharanam vraja’? Is this the reason for all religious conflicts? How can we change this?

    This knowledge was given to people present at that time, to help focus their mind in the present. Now if you are listening to me, I will tell you, ‘This is the truth, just be here, now!’ This is because the mind has a tendency to glorify the past, or ...
  2. Gurudev, people sin in one life, why does God punish them in the next lives. Wouldn’t it be better to know the reason while you’re being punished.

    There are many different types of karma. Some things if you do today, it gives you result immediately. Suppose there is fire, and you keep your hand in it, will it burn today or tomorrow? It will burn now. But if you sow a mango seed, for it to grow an ...
  3. Gurudev, I am able to have an Art of Living experience everywhere, except with my family. Could you please explain why, and how do I come out of it?

    Sometimes, some people at some places push your buttons more than other people. That is your tapasya, your sadhana. Be there, don’t run away, that is where your test is happening. It is a test as well as a practice. You have to endure that. < ...
  4. Gurudev, what is the difference between Shiva Tattva and Krishna consciousness?

    Shiva Tattva is a theory, it has no physical form. Krishna is one who imbibed the Shiva Tattva in total, in the human form. Krishna was a historical figure. He lived 5,114 years ago. Krishna walked on the planet, but he imbibed the ...
  5. Gurudev, I have been told that a human soul can often take one to two million years to find liberation. Is it true that by doing Kriya and meditation every day, this liberation can be obtained even in one lifetime?

    Everything works with some strange karma. You must lift your eyes and look into this realm. There is a beautiful couplet that says, ‘This world has all the wealth, all that is needed, but one who has no karma, cannot get it.’ So, whe ...
  6. Gurudev, I learnt a lot of good principles here. How to implement this in my everyday life? To be in business I need to be a little aggressive and active. Just meditation won't do.

    Correct! There is no need for mood making. When you’re sitting here, you’re sitting like this (cross legged). When you go to your office, you don’t have to sit like this! When you are in business, you do business. You don’t put on your winter coat all ...
  7. Gurudev, can you please talk a little more about the sound/alphabet meditation?

    That is the meditation that we did today, where you can’t go to Ka without Aa. So, you went to the very source where the sound arose, right? What happened at that time? Stillness! The mind became totally still at that moment. Thus, we went to ...
  8. Gurudev, I feel I am stuck. I am unable to spread The Art of Living knowledge. What should I do?

    You don’t need to do that what you cannot do. Nobody expects you to do anything which you cannot do. But whatever you can do, you must do. This is because when we do service, it does good to other people, and that brings us immense satisfaction too. Oka ...
  9. You are Fire

    We need to remember that we are fire. However, some ash gets accumulated over the mind. Once you blow the ash away then the fire will rise up and shine brightly. If there are too many worries in your mind, then just say ‘Hmm’ (with slight force), and all ...
