    You can be liberated right now, this very moment.

  2. 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 ...

  3. Gurudev, it has been said in the Yoga sutra ‘Tivra samveganam asannaha’ (Those who seek liberation wholeheartedly without feverishness attain liberation quickly). For liberation does one need speed or peace?

    When it is for ourselves, if we want a car or a job ...

  6. Gurudev, even after death, a man in the form of a soul keeps on looking for a body. Why there is so much attachment to the body?

    This is because the body is the instrument of carrying out one’s Dharma (one’s duties or karma). It is said, ‘Sharira madhyam Dharma-khalu sadhanam’. It means that if one has to carry out one’s duties or one’s karma, it can only be done throu ...
  7. Gurudev, sometimes I feel I am giving too much attention to the destination, i.e., Moksha (liberation), and so I forget the journey, i.e., life. What to do?

    Moksha means relief, and relief from work is essential. Relief fr ...

    One has to go step by step, from one ladder (of life) to another to reach the goal of Mukti (liberation). In the beginning they come so that get some relief from the hardships of life so that they can free themselves from their pain and suffering. ...

    Panchanga refers to the motion of the planets and celestial bodies. Astrology itself is Panchanga (a tool used to determine and study the planetary positions and their effects upon an individual). Suppose you are angry at somebody, then you k ...
