  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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.
    Channeling is when some spirit comes into your body or somebody's body and says something, and i ...

  4. Dearest Gurudev, could you please talk about Manu and his role in all our scriptures.

    Manu was one of the initial kings, like Adam and Eve. I don't know at what time period he was, but he has written the rules and regulations for society at that time.
    Manu has written many good things, but one of the reasons why he has been bitterly cr ...

    From what I understand, the spiritual path is about dropping one's ego. Yet what I've observed is, as a Guru you seem to do a lot of pumping up of people's ego; especially certain people. Please talk about this apparent irony. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: There ...

  7. Can you please speak about the significance of Bhagavad Gita in our day-to-day life.

    You can analyze your mind, you intellect, and your whole system to see whether it is Sattvik, Rajasik or Tamasik. This knowledge is from the Bhagavad Gita.
    Bhagavad Gita gives you that much needed bridge between the inner (world) ...

  8. Many times people talk about seeking something on this path (questions like: Who am I? What is the truth?) I feel like I am not seeking anything, is that okay?

    Yes, because sometimes the seeking is not on a conscious level, but deep inside it is there.
