Gurudev, are you an Avataar of Lord Shiva or Lord Krishna? I have been asking myself this question for a long time, so please remove my confusion.

Gurudev, when death is the ultimate truth of life, then why does one take the guidance of astrology?
Are you asking this for yourself or for somebody else? If you are asking for yourself then just become aware that all of us are going to die, for sure. The important thing is that while we live, we shall be happy and have fun in all that we do.
