  1. What is nothingness filled with? Is it full of life and awareness?

    Nothingness is filled with energy. This is again quantum physics.
    They say, the empty space that you see around the Sun is not empty. In fact, the Sun is round because the energy surrounding it pushing it from all the four sides and making it round.< ...

  2. Dear Gurudev, what is the force that keeps the material things in their shapes? I go to sleep at night and when I wake up in the morning, all the furniture is still there. What is holding the outside world together? The explanation I found in Physics was not satisfactory.

    That is called intelligence. There is some intelligence that is making you ask this question; that is holding your brain together.
    That which is keeping the brain together is the same intelligence which is keeping the furniture together also! B ...

  3. Gurudev, why was the world created?

    For you to ask this question! If it was not created, how would you even ask this question?
    We are all thinking about the creation of the world. Is a mirage created? When was it created? Do you know what a mirage is? On a hot summer day, in the dessert ...
  4. Gurudev, one day you spoke about duality and non duality with examples of door and window and seeing all as wood. So where does the philosophy of Vishisht Advaita (a sub-school of thought of the Vedanta philosophy) fit in with the same example?

    Well, Vishisht Advaita says that both (the duality and non-duality of Creation and Consciousness) are true. So as per Vishishta Advaita, that is also true and this is also true. Advaita usually doesn’t consider the other things as tr ...

  5. Gurudev, When the purpose of life is to realize that we are part of the Supreme Consciousness and to ultimately merge with the Divine, then why did God divide Himself into many souls at the beginning?

    Well, God has His own logic and His own ways. What is the point of you asking this question now? It is too late! (Laughter) You know, you can think about it this way: if only air had different colours.
    In the olden days, you had these Shantara ...
  6. Gurudev, what is atma and paramatma and what is the relation between the two? And who are Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva?

    It is said that in the beginning there was just energy. That one energy, that one Divine light thought, I am alone, let me multiply into many. Eko'ham bahu syam (I am one, may I be many), and it assumed the form of Para Shakti ( ...
  7. Gurudev, what is Om? Who started Om?

    Om is the essence of creation, like the seed of a tree.
    In the seed, the whole tree is there, right? You sow a mango seed and the whole mango tree comes. This is the reason why mantras are called bij mantra (bij means seed). Om is the param ...
  8. Gurudev, Since we are ‘Om’ (the primordial sound of Creation), does ‘Om’ refer to the sound vibration, or the principle that ‘Om’ represents, or the effect of ‘Om’ after the vibration ceases? In other words, since ‘Om’ creates peace; so it is that peace that we are, or are we the creation (result) of that peace?

    All that is said, and all that is unsaid, is all ‘Om’. All that is clear and all that is confused (unclear) is also ‘Om’. Is it clear now, or is it still confusing? It is still all ‘Om’ (laughter).

    Anything that you say or you don’t say is all ‘ ...

  9. Gurudev, can you please tell us more about the lineage of the masters?

    Well, we do not know when it exactly began, since it goes back many thousands of years.

    The knowledge of Yoga, Meditation, and the knowledge that the whole of the universe is created by One energy, has been passed down thro ...

  10. Gurudev, What is the purpose of this creation?

    What is the purpose of any sports?
    (Answer: To win or entertain)
    Yes, just entertainment, or fun, isn’t it! Same way!

    It is just that the Brahman was One in the beginning and he felt a little bored, so he said, ‘Let me become many.’ As ...
