  2. I have misbehaved and now I feel very sad about it. My family is also suffering. I keep thinking of the past and I can’t get rid of it. Please tell me what to do.

    What is the surety that you will take my advice and do what I say?

    When someone does something wrong or misbehaves with us, what do we do? First, we gently make them understand how they are wrong. Many people unknowingly commit a mistake, so once they understand that they are makin ...

  4. Gurudev, it is said that Lord Krishna forgave the 100 wicked deeds of his cousin Shishupala. But when Shishupala committed the 101th wicked deed, Lord Krishna hurled the Sudarshan Chakra (the Lord’s divine discus) and beheaded him. If Lord Krishna had tried warning Shishupala at the 99th deed, maybe he would have stopped. Please speak about this.

    Lord Krishna gave a warning every time a wrong deed was done.
    In fact, despite warning him the 99th time also, when Shishupala did not stop, Lord Krishna had to take that step of beheading him. It is not that Lord Krishna forgave him without making h ...

  7. In Europe, we say that the Pope cannot make mistakes, and that he is infallible. Are you too infallible as a Guru, or do you also make mistakes?

    When you are spontaneous and aligned to the Nature, then mistakes do not happen. Now I can make mistakes if I try to speak in French! (Laughter) I do not know how to repair the television but I can certainly try. I might make a few mistakes here ...

  8. Gurudev, we can see mistake of others very easily, but keep on repeating our mistakes as we don’t see them. Many times we are not able to apply knowledge on ourselves, but we give knowledge very easily to others. Why is it so?

    That is a good realization. Once we recognize that we are not applying the knowledge. Once we realize it then we start turning around. <br>
    Do you know why mistakes are tempting? It is because we think we are going to get some great pleasure ...

  9. Gurudev, people accuse me for a sin which I have not done. What should I do?
