Gurudev, when a beloved or someone very close leaves us and goes away, how can we bring them back into our life especially when we are on the path?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Whoever has left has gone to their rightful place. Whenever some loved one goes away, it is to remind you that life is temporary and will end. Do you understand?

I will also have to leave one day. You too are going to leave everything and go. Yes in those moments you feel sad. That is why there is meditation, sadhana and satsang. Doing all these will help you to overcome the grief and sorrow of separation.
