  1. (A member of the audience spontaneously asked a question without speaking into the mike. The question was inaudible in the recording.)

    See, you should never think the future is karma or destiny. See the past as destiny, future as free will and be happy in the present. This is the intelligent way to be. You know what the fools do? They keep regretting the past, thinking the past was free ...
  2. If everything is pre-destined then why does a human being need to do anything?

    Though everything is destined, man has to make efforts to get what he likes and what he wants. For example, if you want sunlight in your house, you need to open the windows and doors to see it. You cannot shut the windows and expect the sunlight to come in ...
  3. If everything is destined, what is the power of prayer?

  4. We are all born with the breath and with all the knowledge inside. So, why is everybody not a Guru like you? Using the knowledge why have you become a Guru?

    You know in the grand design we all have come here with some grand plan. It is like – you do this, you do this and you do that.

  5. Do we create our reality or is everything predetermined?

    Do you have a dog at home?
    (Answer: Yes)
    See, when you go to the park, you go with a leash on the dog. That is legal. Now, the dog has freedom only for the length of the leash. Correct? It can sit very close to where the leash is, or go ...
  6. Gurudev, if everything is already written then where does karma come into play?

    You are saying that everything is written, but it is not like that. Some things are destiny, and some free will.

    For example, it is raining, that is destiny. To get wet or not is your free will; that is your choice. If you take an umbrella, you will n ...

  7. Like a GPS you guide us to our goal and destiny, but what is our goal and destiny?

  9. Shall I blame our luck or destiny if something bad happens to me?

    Why do you want to blame? Tell me!
    If something bad has happened, learn a lesson from it. Everything that has gone wrong has made you stronger, deeper somewhere. It has contributed to your personality, isn’t it? So be thankful, and move on.< ...
  10. Dear Gurudev, if God in the end is the doer, then how come a living being is responsible for karma, or results of action?

    See, doership goes with enjoyership. If you are not the doer, you are not also experiencing the consequence. You can’t say, ‘I am not the doer; God made me eat more food but I am having a tummy ache.’
