  1. Gurudev, The knowledge in the Vedas contains the truth and laws of nature. Is modern science also a part of this body of knowledge?

    Yes. Knowledge is infinite. Many scientists of modern age are the rishis (sages) of today. They explore the universe. All are to be honored, whether ancient or modern. Today’s quantum physics discoveries are startling. There is so much similarity to Vedi ...
  2. Gurudev, Silence, music and logic are the three essential ingredients you have spoken of. How does logic relate to knowledge or consciousness?

    Logic is essential. If you see an idol of Goddess Saraswati, she is sitting on solid rock. She has a book in one hand which is logic. In the others, she has rosemary beads for meditation and veena (a musical instrument). Logic, music, mauna (silence) are a ...
  3. Gurudev, do you believe that prisons are right?

    I consider prisons to be like hospitals. Like when someone’s body is sick, you take them to the hospital; like that, when someone’s actions are sick, they go to prison, only to get better and come back.
    But, unfortunately, today prisons have become a ...
  4. Gurudev, it is said that power corrupts. Would you speak about the way one can handle power?

    Power corrupts when your intentions are not correct. When your intentions are not right, you try to gain power in a corrupt manner.
    Some say, power is poison. I agree with it if you are using it for your selfish reasons. But if you are using power for ...
  5. Gurudev, How to compete in a business world which is so corrupt and when the corrupt have a clear edge over all your deals?

    It is difficult for a single person to fight against corruption, that too for a business man. For a monk it is easy, because a monk has nothing to lose, but for a business man it is difficult and that is why you need the civil society. When the civil socie ...
  6. Gurudev, Please tell us about some of the changes that the Earth is presently undergoing.

    Yes, Earth constantly changes. But what humankind has done with the environment is unfortunate. We have put so many dynamites to make mines, to extract from the depth of the Earth. Earthquakes, tsunami, and all these disasters have started because of this. ...
  7. Gurudev, many movements on corruption start but they soon fizzle out. How do we keep the movement going on?

    This is something very serious. We are in the same position where we were before independence. We were in utter helplessness then as we are now. The country was being looted. You know, 900 ships of gold were transferred from India. People were taxed un ...
  8. Gurudev, the value of the rupee is falling; I am being alienated from my religion in the name of secularism. Will we improve only we also go through what has been happening in Egypt (referring to the recent events of civil war and public unrest)?

    By God’s grace, may that never happen here to our country. What is happening in Egypt and in Syria should not happen to any country. Here in India, if there is any injustice being done in the name of secularism, then you alone are responsible for it, no on ...
  9. Gurudev, you have tweeted that ‘too many Dushasanas and Shakunis are around today and should be shown their rightful place in society’. Who are the Dushasanas and Shakunis (referring to immoral and corrupt characters in the Mahabharata as metaphors) today and what is their rightful place?

    I leave that to you to guess. Their rightful place is Lord Krishna’s birthplace (referring to the prisons, where Lord Krishna was born). Did you get it? The jail is where all the Dushasanas and Shakunis should go. Do you not think so? ...
