  1. Gurudev, today while doing gardening seva, I sprayed natural insecticide probably killing a thousands of bugs. How does this fit in with karma and non-violence?

    Don’t worry, you can kill a mosquito, no problem! You see, violence is the act that you do with anger or some selfish goal. When animals prey for their food, it is not called violence. They are just doing their dharma. Similarly in y ...

  2. Dear Gurudev, what is the most effective way to deal with obsessive thoughts?

    Just embrace them. The more you try to push them away, the more they come. If obsessive thoughts come, give them a big hug and stay with them for a minute or two and you will see, they just disappear.

    Another way is to put a stick in the burning ...

  3. Dear Gurudev, the most important person in my life after you, is not talking to me. What should I do? Also, he was not very happy with my coming here. What should I do when he behaves badly when I have done nothing wrong?

    Have patience! You be nice to him and he will turn around.

  4. Beloved Gurudev, you often talk about multiple realities. Please tell us some more. Please tell us more about angels, guardians, devas, etc.

  7. Dear Gurudev, why do I go on and off in my sadhana (spiritual practice)? I hear that other people do this as well

    Well, it's natural. When there are fruits in the tree you enjoy the fruits and you forget to water the roots. And then when the tree starts drying out then you water it again. This is how we do. Once, twice or three times you go through this cycle a ...

  8. Dear Gurudev, how can I devote more time to my spiritual growth when I am financially struggling?

    You don't have to devote more time, whatever little time you devote is good enough. Once or twice a year, a few days for an Advance Meditation Course is good enough. You don't have to go for one course after another for the whole year. If you do ...

  9. Dear Gurudev, what do you think of channeling?

    Stay away from it! I think you shouldn't get involved in channeling. You are on a path which is much higher and far superior than the channeling.
