  1. I am centered on the Divine, yet there is restlessness, though on the outside everything seems perfect.

    In every seeker’s life there comes a time when the heart is at unease, and there is restlessness. In the West, it is known as the “dark day of the soul”. There comes a time when satvik shakti (positive energy) is less and rajogun and t ...
  2. Is the concept of anatma (no soul) true? Modern neuroscientists are in agreement with this idea. Please tell us what the truth is.

    Lord Buddha said, “I went in meditation, I searched and searched and searched for the soul, I could not find it. So there is no soul, there is no atma.” That become anatmavad. He said everything is hollow and empty. There is no soul, there is no person, no ...
  3. Gurudev, in the Bhagavad Gita it is said that Lord Krishna is the Supreme Soul and He alone is everything. And in Shiva Tattva, Shiva is said to be everything. So which of these is the truth?

    Both, because there is no difference between the two. That which is Shiva is Krishna, and the same thing is God and everything else. They are no two, there is only one. There was a Rishi (sage) who believed that Lord Krishna (Hari) and L ...
  4. Dear Gurudev, In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna talks about ‘Yogakshemam Vahamyaham’. What I get is from the Divine, but I fail to understand how the Divine can take away as well.

    Well keep wondering. The whole world is given to you and one day the whole world will be taken away from you. So this is a part of the creation. It is not that there is some Divine sitting somewhere up there doing it. The whole world, the whole univer ...
  5. Gurudev, in the fifteenth chapter of the Gita, there is a description of a tree which is upside down. The branches are in the ground and the roots are in the sky. Can you please explain the significance of this?

    This is a symbol to signify that your origin is the Divinity; the consciousness. That is your roots. The mind and all its paraphernalia are like the branches. And all the different types of rhythms in life, all the different emotions, etc., are like t ...
  6. Dear Gurudev, can you please tell us more about the lineage of the masters?

    Well, we do not know when it exactly began, since it goes back many thousands of years. The knowledge of Yoga, Meditation, and the knowledge that the whole of the universe is created by One energy, has been passed down thro ...
  7. Dear Gurudev, if one thinks that one’s Ishta(most revered deity) is the most superior, then does that not bring about fundamentalism?

    See, if you ask any mother in the world, she will say her child is the best. There may be so many other children in the world, but for her, her child is the best of all.  Fundamentalism is considering or showing that others are wrong or lesser than yo ...
  8. Since God, who resides in us is capable of doing anything, then are we also capable of doing anything? If so, then how does destiny and Divine will fit in?

    It fits in very well. When your thoughts are in alignment with the Divinity, then you call it free will. When your thoughts are aligned in a direction opposite to that of the Divinity, you call it destiny. Got it? If you have not read the Patanjali Yo ...
  9. Jai Gurudev, can you talk about Chaitra Navratri and its significance?

    Navratri means the nine nights. In the nine nights you turn inwards. It is a time for meditation, for you turn inwards, and then come out with creativity. That is the significance. Chaitra means the beginning of a New Year. So the New Year beings with ...
  10. Dear Gurudev, if God and the Divine are not objects of perception, then what are you?

    You find that out. To know who I am, first you have to find out who you are. Start from where you are. If you know yourself, then you will know me. You can’t know me if you don’t know yourself. ...
