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.
You can control small things, that is why you have this illusion (that you are in control). Just try to control the big things: stop the war in Iraq, or stop the war in Syria.

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 ...
Gurudev, you have always taken care of me. I have only one wish: For as long as I am in this body and in my other births to come, please make me your disciple and liberate me. Show me the truth so that I can liberate others too.
Recently, a saint came to see me in Rishikesh, and in our congregation he said a beautiful thing. He said, 'One who has learnt in this school will stay. One who has not learnt only will leave'.
Usually, in a school, if you have learnt and you ...
Yes, but you should not make it a profession. You shouldn’t say, 'Okay, I am going to heal you, but you have to give me some money'.
You know, with that type of healers, the healing does not work. It may appear to work for a little while but really it ...
Gurudev, I have been a follower of the Radhaswami tradition for a very long time. In my desire to meet you, I attended the Happiness program and learnt the Sudarshan Kriya. Now I feel guilty that I am not doing something wrong. Can I follow two different spiritual traditions together?
There is no need to feel guilty at all. See, you started following a particular spiritual tradition sincerely and did a lot of good service there, as a result of that you got the gift of coming to this tradition. But once you are practicing the meditati ...
Dear Gurudev, in my daily life I catch myself breathing very slowly and deeply. In this state it is hard for me to do physical work, or get connected to the situation in hand. Please advice.
Do some yoga and do some exercises. Very shallow breath is good while you’re meditating but not while you’re in activity....
See, sometimes we become aware of our own capabilities, and sometimes we come to know about them when someone else speaks about them, or when we hear about it from some third person.
For quite some time, Lord Hanuman was not aware of his strengths to ...
Gurudev, are love and devotion the same? What should I do if the person whom I love betrays my trust?
Even then be grateful to God.
What good is the faith that shakes? Faith is that which remains firm even during tough times. Suppose you place your trust in someone and got betrayed. Then just remind yourself that it is all a play of the Divine< ...
Gurudev, I happened to meet an American diplomat who has been on the spiritual path for 40-45 years. He said that some saints have visions of a kingdom of God, which is blue. Millions of souls are hovering around to get inside the kingdom of God, but that is possible only through a master. I just wanted to know whether all this is true.In the Gita also it is said that, among the millions, only few will walk the path, and amongst the few who walk the path, only a few will come to know me well.
Among these 8.4 million types of species on the planet, human species is only one. Af ...
