Sl.No. Name Question Answer
29PraveenSir, Spiritual seekers in ancient times and even till last century, used to do penance for years with less food, very limited set of allowed food items with limited quantity. But how could they stay strong/healthy to do long hours of spiritual practices without getting any diseases like heart attack, nerves weakness, kidney stones, blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid diseases & nutrient deficiency diseases, etc.
I really wonder how could they stay strong in old age when they didn’t have enough nutrient food daily since young age because of strict diet/fasting/rules? Eg: 9naths, siddh gurus
Nowadays people are getting some or other disease even though they eat 3 meals daily.
In ancient times they lived in accordance with Mother Nature. This is not possible to all now because of growth of population, development of science and technology. The food they had was pure and plants were grown with natural manure. Now we have adulterated food and plants are grown with pesticides and chemicals. We need nutrients because in our food natural gowth is lacking. Even our nutrients are not naturally produced.
Death and disease happen because of our past karma though Mother Nature helps them happen. It is not that in the past no saint or yogi had left the body in the young age. Adi Shankaracharya and Saint Jnaneswar are two examples.

What matters is how truthful we live and what our karmas are but not how long we live or what we eat or drink or how strong and disease free is the body.

28Answers.comWhat is one major idea Hinduism to its followers?Guru is the major idea in Hinduism or Sanatana Dharma. No other idea can surpass this in Hinduism.

The following two poems explain the core idea of Hinduism:
Let truth be your speech,
Let righteousness never breach,
Practice what parents teach
Next, what the true Guru does preach.
Their services ever you beseech,
Then satisfy guests each,
By that, thee God does reach.
My Guru says,
“Mother the first teacher,
Father the next preacher,
Then the true Guru be sought.
By that, God is easily brought.”

27Ganesh SWhy 9Naths or Krishna not taking any action & save Indians?
In India, the costs of rents, house, education, hospitals, taxes are so high & they keep increase time to time without major reason.
There’re not many Government/permanent jobs. Most of the jobs are corporate jobs, where employees are required to play lots of office politics (Eg; Software field) , influencing & tricking people sell company products & services (Eg: banks, coaching centres, real estate workers, film industry)
If this is the situation of all corporate/private jobs then how can one live a life of truth in words, deed, & thought as per you nowadays?
If one doesn’t work then he can’t pay rents, children schools fee,  so he had to work as per one’s corporate job’s needs  which is playing office politics, tricking people, generating money to company in adharmic ways  get salary monthly & pay bills  this is vicious cycle.
This is the situation of all most all employees of corporate jobs unless one born in upper class families. Now please don’t say that there are corporate jobs which don’t involve adharmic activities because I have more knowledge about these things and have many contacts.
Why aren’t 9Naths or Krishna creating more dharmic (or government jobs) for people? Why can’t they decrease cost of living in India where everything is very expensive? Being powerful gods they don’t do any of these and expect us to live dharmic life like them? How can corporate employees live dharmic life when their day-to-day work itself involves adharmic activities in one or other form?
Many youth are confused and bewildered like you. What you said is quite right. The world is so (as you mentioned in the question) but saints, sages and scriptures say to lead a life of truth in thought, word and deed and practice Dharma when the world around you practicing Adharma. Some become frustrated and go into depression.

1. To get rid of this predicament Guru is needed. Go to a Guru and serve him for guidance to face the problems of the world.
2. Until you meet your Guru consider your parents as your Gurus and take their guidance and orders what to do for these worldly matters.
3. Come to Guru Purnima, we will have personal discussions on these matters because these cannot be revealed here. Click here for the details of Guru Purnima.

Immediately stop blaming Nine Naths and Lord Krishna for the state of world affairs.

26Ganapathy ChidambaramWhy did Hastamalaka need a guru?
Adi Shankara accepted Hastamalaka as his disciple once he realized that he was always absorbed in the Brahman. Why does such a person need a Guru or a master? Hasn’t he already accomplished the final goal?
Thanks for reminding me the disciple Hastamalaka and his Guru Adi Shankaracharya.

For your information knowledge goes unrecognized without a Guru. Even in this world we need certificates from schools, colleges and universities to get recognition of knowledge. Suppose one has gained all this worldly education on his own effort without attending any college and has no certificate from any university. Do governments offer him any position? Is he allowed to practice his knowledge? Is he allowed to teach others? If it is a medical profession he would be labeled as a crack. He may be put in jail for he has no valid license or recognition of his knowledge though he has good understanding of the subjects.

If this is the case of this world then imagine what about the other world. Hastamalaka knew this and became a disciple. Moreover Brahma cannot be known without a Guru. Final goal will never be reached or accomplished without the grace of a Guru. All sages, saints, seers and incarnations like Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, etc, served Their respective Gurus. He followed Them and upheld the truth by becoming a disciple. He proved that the truthful are greater than the truth itself. I bow to him. Further doubts may be cleared by one’s Guru.

This also proves the foolishness of present masses who rush to niguras (non-disciples or the uninitiated) and self-proclaimed Gurus, swamis, sadhus, saints, babas, preachers, matas, etc, for liberation. In the end these followers and their leaders enter into the darker regions of hell.

This also proves the foolishness of some who self-proclaim attaining enlightenment or liberation with own efforts without serving any Guru.

"Sans teacher, one cannot learn even science
Sans Guru, what one knows is only nescience."

25Neeta ShettyWhere is the abode of God?One’s heart is the undisputed abode of God. To this all ancient saints and sages agreed. So declares every scripture of the world.
24Abhishek DasWhat is the real meaning of Tathagata, according to Buddhist views?Tathagata means who has arrived to that truth (Tat) or reached the truth. Do you know the 'Tat' in the Mahavakya Tat Tvam Asi (That thou art or Thou are that)?
The same is implied in Tathagata.
23Swapnil SahooWhat is the highest form of pleasure for humans?It is already mentioned in the Upanishads. Sage Yajnavalkya answered this to King Janaka when the latter asked.

"If a person is perfect of body and is prosperous, lord of others and most lavishly supplied with all human enjoyments, he represents the highest blessing among men. This human bliss multiplied a hundred times makes one measure of the bliss of the Manes who have won their own world. The bliss of these Manes who have won their world, multiplied a hundred times, makes one measure of bliss in the world of the gandharvas. The bliss of the gandharvas, multiplied a hundred times, makes one measure of the bliss of the gods by action (those who attain godhood through sacrificial rites). The bliss of the gods by action, multiplied a hundred times, makes one measure of the bliss of the gods by birth, as also of one who is versed in the Vedas, sinless and free from desire. The bliss of the gods by birth, multiplied a hundred times, makes one measure of bliss in the World of Prajapati, as also of one who is versed in the Vedas, sinless and free from desire. The bliss in the World of Prajapati, multiplied a hundred times, makes one measure of bliss in the World of Brahma (Hiranyagarbha), as also of one who is well versed in the end of the Vedas, sinless and free from desire. This, indeed, is the supreme bliss. This is the state of Brahma, O Emperor," said Yajnavalkya.

22Aasis MoharanaWhat is the feeling and the experience of the bliss attained by perfection in Bhakti yoga? What is the heart's feeling when the soul only desires to serve God and his devotees?Answer to your first question (perfection in Bhakti). Some points:
1. God resides in devotee's heart.
2. He follows him wherever he goes.
3. There is nothing that cannot be attained.
4. All world is nothing but reflection of his own soul.
5. There is no difference between him and the world.
6. Time accepts defeat.
7. What to speak? He is the living example of perfection.

This is to your second question (desire of serving God and His devotees). Some points:
1. This is only a desire. His heart is interested in Satsang.
2. His heart longs to find out His devotees.
3. His heart tries to find out the methods by which God and His devotees are pleased.

21BEBI SWhat is Samprajnata Samadhi?The Samadhi based on these following four is called Samprajnata Samadhi.
1. Right reasoning of truth,
2. Right vision of truth.
3. Ecstasy because of the above two and
4. The ego (of the above three).

Note: These things should be learnt under the guidance of a qualified Guru.

20X- FreakWhat is real? How do we define something that is real without using our senses?How can the real be defined with the unreal things like the senses, the mind, etc.? The real is a matter of experience. It is a feeling like sweet. You cannot understand what is sweet without experience. It is beyond words.
19P. S.What is difference between Guru(गुरु ),Trainer( शिक्षक) & Teacher (अध्यापक)?Teacher (अधयापक), trainer (शिक्षक), Acharya, master, etc, are lamps of varying Wattage who illuminate in darkness.
Guru (गुरु ) or Spiritual Teacher is the sun who dispels darkness at once and all these lamps lose their significance.
18Gita Goudarzi BahramipourWhat is difference between a believer and an unbeliever?In fact there is no difference.The same Soul is in the believer and in the unbeliever. The differences exist in duality or in relative sense.
The truth is even unbeliever believes in unbelief. Unbeliever cannot exist without believer. Believer can exist without unbeliever. The problem is believer cannot get recognition without unbeliever. The unbeliever lives in believing not to believe that a believer believes. These belief and unbelief are relative and depends on circumstances, teachings, etc.

The truth is beyond believer and unbeliever.

17Muralidharan KVWhat is Dharma megha Samadhi?You have asked a very good question.
In Dharma Megha Samadhi, the seeker will be permanently established in Dharma or Righteousness. His actions of three fold will be in accordance with Dharma and truth. This becomes natural to him. He sees knowledge and wisdom everywhere. Infinite knowledge and wisdom spring from his heart. He is established in it. If he turns away from this natural state (Samadhi) also, knowledge and wisdom surround him like a cloud (Megha). This cloud downpours unceasingly knowledge and wisdom on him though he does not want to drench himself in it. He is engulfed by knowledge and wisdom. He cannot escape from it though he wills. His actions produce no results or say he is free from the consequences of all actions of three fold. All his actions are burnt by the knowledge of Brahma. All his doubts and confusions have vanished into thin air. He is called a perfect and accomplished Yogi. He becomes Atma personified.

This state cannot be achieved without the combined grace of God and an accomplished perfect Guru.

16Deepika EWhat is Chidambara Rahasya?This is the same as that one encounters in every mosque. Lord Shiva as formless God or Brahma or Allah is worshipped in Chidambaram. The secret you may learn from your Guru because if revealed it is no longer a secret.
15Atharva SurveWhat is Brahman and Maya according Hindu philosophy?I do not give answer according to any philosophy because I do not know about different types of philosophies. I give answer according to my knowledge and understanding.
Brahma and Maya are the two forms of only One Reality. Maya works to glorify Brahma. Brahma upholds Maya. Without Maya, Brahma cannot be realized. Brahma meets His devotees in the form of Guru. Hence only Guru is Brahma and the rest is Maya.

I bow to the lotus feet of my Guru Siddha Nath who is Brahma personified.
14Sanjeev MisraWhat is anahat nada meditation?There is Anahata wheel in the body. When Kundalini rises and reaches this chakra, it will stop the rotation of the wheel. At that juncture when you concentrate there you will hear different types of sounds harsh, soft, subtle and more subtle and that of various musical instruments like drum, kettle, flute, veena, etc. These sounds are produced on their own without any effort of the seeker then the nada or sound is called Anahata Nada.

Caution: This concentration should not be attempted without a qualified Guru. If done without a Guru gives adverse results.

13Tima Murak WitariWhat is Advaita Vedanta?There are four terms, Dvaita, Advaita, Veda and Anta.
1. Dvaita means two or duality. Brahma and Maya, birth and death, God and Mother Nature, man and woman, light and darkness, etc.
2. Advaita means no two or non-duality. That says there is only One God or only One Truth.
3. Veda means that to be known or knowledge.
4. Anta means the end. Vedanta means the end of the Vedas.
5. Now you can understand the meaning of the Vedanta which is the end of the knowledge.
Vedanta cannot be known without serving a Guru who has reached the end of the knowledge. Advaita Vedanta is the end of the knowledge of no two or non-duality. This cannot be known without serving a Guru who is established in Advaita Vedanta. Because it is said,

“Sans teacher, one cannot learn even science,
Sans Guru, what one knows is only nescience.”

12AdityaI want to be a disciple of a nath yogi and find freedom. Can I get a guri?Hari Om!
I am not a Guru. I am only a disciple. I cannot make anyone as my disciple.
My Guru has renounced His body.
I can only share and spread the teachings of my Guru with you as a friend or a brother.
You may practice these teachings for a year or so and nothing happens you are free to leave the teachings. You may think over it. Meanwhile you may visit our website and browse it, download the books free and study them. Take your own time. After doing all this if you want to practice the teachings of my Guru, contact me here for guidance and sharing.
11Tia BerryWhat if anything, should I say to a good friend of mine who is blindly following a very obviously fake Guru?In spiritual matters it is very difficult to convince someone though the person is our best friend. Spirituality is far from blind beliefs and superstitions. Spirituality is a matter of self-conviction and free will. Here none can force anyone. It is a matter of practice of truth in thought, word and deed. This practice develops right discrimination in oneself. Without right discrimination one becomes a victim of fake Gurus and false Babas.

See, one has to eke out one’s Karma. You cannot take your friend’s Karma on your own. At the best you may advise him/her as a friend. Right advice given to fools make them more agitated, restless and provocative. Leave him to his Karma in due course if he develops right discrimination he will leave fake Gurus on his own. Right discrimination makes one wise.

There is a quote from the Upanishads. “Even if Lord Brahma comes and teaches to a fool, he cannot understand the truth.”

Do not waste much time on him else you may stray from the path. One has to tread the path individually. Even the advice of the enlightened beings is of no use unless one takes the course.

10Kannans MWhat are the varius stages of enlightenement?There are 7 stages or say 7 floors of enlightenment.

1. Subhechcha
2. Vicharana
3. Thanu Manasa
4. Sattvapatti
5. Asamsakti
6. Padartha Bhavani
7. Turyaga
The first three are the floors of the serious seeker of the enlightenment called Mumukshu.
"Brahmavid, Brahmavidvara, Brahmavidvar eeya, Brahmavidvarishta" are those who are established in the fourth, the fifth, the sixth and the seventh floors of enlightenment respectively.

The details may be learnt by approaching your Guru. All the best.

9Mehak KWhat are the lessons that should be unlearnt?1. The lessons that immerse one in carnal and sensual pleasures.
2. The lessons that develop lust, greed, anger, etc.
3. The lessons that engage in killing, lying, gambling, etc, the seven sins.
4. The lessons that makes the mind run riot causing violence.
5. The lessons about sexual education, meat eating, drinking wine, etc.
6. Lessons from unqualified and ineligible persons.

There are many. Hari Om!

8Ashwin KWhat are the most interesting facts about Hinduism?Hari Om!
The following is the most interesting.

The Universal Fact Of Hinduism:

There was a seed of mercy and was planted in the field of mind after ploughing it with truth. It was supplied with the water of renunciation.
This seed came out as a plant and grew it into a tree. Many branches grew on this and were supported by shoots. This tree spread over a vast area. After a longtime first some branches identified themselves as Buddhism, Christianity, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Islam, Sikhism, etc. Some other branches identified themselves as irreligion, science, secularism, communism, consumerism, etc.

All these branches saw the trunk as different from them and called it as Hinduism.

Now the leaves, flowers and fruits are one and the same irrespective of their growth on any branch.
This tree is inverted whose roots go upwards and trunk and branches grow downwards.

7Gaurav PShould I cover my head while praying in Hinduism?Hari Om!

Yes, you need to cover your head so that the enemies whose names are Lust, Greed and Anger cannot hit your head while you are praying to God. This is applicable to all religions including Hinduism.

6Ganesh SHello Sir,

My parents are poor. I recently got a private job but not high paying one. I do not wish to get married because nowadays the cost of raising kids, wife is very high in big cities compared to previous decade.

Sad, (Stone-hearted) Nava Naths/Krishna are not doing anything regarding this to save us.

Also, for poor/lower middle-class married people do not get time for spiritual practices. And if we do not do hours of spiritual practices then (stone-hearted) Krishna will not give heaven/good birth next time.

Only people who spent hours of spiritual practices could get heaven/good next birth in scriptures. Is my thinking of remaining unmarried good decision?

Hari Om!

1. You talk as if in the world only you are poor and all others are rich.

2. Why do you project your shortcomings on Nava Naths and Lord Krishna? Who said They are not saving Their devotees? If They do not save Their devotees who will become Their devotees.

3. Your language displays how much devotion (better call it obsession) you have towards Them. God or Nava Naths are not your servants to attend you at your call. There are many very, very poor devotees who worship Them without a complaint and are content to take life as it is.

4. You lack basic practices like how to revere God, His devotees, parents, teachers, etc. It is far cry for you to practice spiritual practices. It is foolish to worry about what happens after death (if one goes to heaven or gets good birth next). Leading a truthful life while practicing devotion here is heaven. Make this very birth as the best birth. Do not look for these things somewhere else or after death.

5. First serve your parents. Listen to them. Practice Dharma.

6. Why do you blame women? Is it not men who are poorer than you not getting married and raising children? Are they not leading happy lives with their families? You must change your thought process towards women. Had your father thought so you would have not been born at all.

7. You talk of the scriptures!! The same scriptures emphasized the need of a Guru on the spiritual path. I do not think you have a Guru.

8. Now come to your decision of being unmarried. I think it is a bad decision because you took this decision on your own. Are your parents happy and satisfied with your decision? Did they order it? Or did your Guru order so if you have one? If not so it is a decision compelled by your ego which is always bad.

5Sarvesh MSir, you wrote in recent answers that your Pardada Guru can clear astrological doshas. But sir he is not alive and how can he remove big doshas like kaal sarp dosh, sade sati etc?

I do not think removing these even possible for Navnaths, 84 siddhas also because these are very dangerous doshas as per astrology.

Only, Gods can clear these doshas but not siddha/sadhus because they do not possess such tapasya power.

Hari Om!

1. You have asked a very good question and one third of it, already answered by you.

2. You said that God can remove these doshas.

3. Who are Navnaths and 84 Siddhas? Do you think they are against God? They are supreme devotees of God. No, no, more and more they are supreme devotees of devotees of God.

4. Do you think God does not surrender to the will and wish of a devotee of His devotees?

5. Our Pardada Guru is a lotus feet servant of a servant of servant ……….. of servant of God.

6. He is a real Siddha who is a servant of servant of servant …. of servant of God. The ultimate Tapasya (penance) power which cannot be challenged is gained by being a servant of servant of servant of ……… servant of God.

7. Astrological doshas are nothing before this Tapasya. Astrologers do not know this secret. Hence they waste their time by worshipping gods instead of devotees.

8. Hope now you understand how our Pardada Guru though left His physical body can remove all doshas if one surrenders to Him.

4Rahul DHello Sir, I am Rahul and we had interaction on whatsapp yesterday.

My question is about when will my routine suffering in life will end?

My wife is an immature an short tempered woman who does not understand me much and quarrels a lot even at silly things. I have tried all tricks but she does not budge. Also, I quit my job in 2019 and started business in Export but I am still struggling and not earning decently. I have constant pressure from my parents and wife to quit business and do job again which I do not want to.

I have already done Kaal Sarpa dosh puja in Ujjain and other astrological remedies but nothing is solving my problems completely. Please guide me in solving my problems !!

Hari Om!

1. Only Time God can say when it will end. The better course for you is to practice devotion while leading a truthful life. Take suffering as a blessing and think God is testing your patience.

2. With your wife and other family members, you have to adjust. Please do not talk about her short-comings as she is your half-part. Everyone has some short-comings here in this world. Do your duty towards your wife and parents. Sometimes we have to listen to them though it is very hard.

3. You do your duty/work for earnings and worship your favourite God twice daily - morning and evening to improve your earnings.

4. Forget about astrological doshas. You may worship our Pardada Guru (Guru of Guru of our Guru). He is known as Azad Muni Baba. He can remove all doshas and solve your problems if one completely surrenders to Him. He has temples at Ujjain, Ratlam, Indore, etc. If you go there, you may contact me to guid you to His ashrams or temples.

5. Or you may come to attend Guru Purnima of our Guru which wil be held in July in Mandsaur. I will inform you of the date and program. You may attend it to solve all your problems.

May God bless you in difficult times!

3Sanjeev MisraHari Om.
Salutations at the holy feet of Guru.

There is a lot of written and discussed about the so called law of karma, it has been said that we can change the prarabdha by our kriyamaan karmas. But for kriyamaan karmas we do need a free will. Let me know, how a person who born as a mentally retarted and is not able to do even his daily activities on his own, how can he have a free will and how he can change his cursed prarabdha by doing kriyamaan karmas.

To me all it seems to be a clever psychological trick to make people believe that they are free to act and can make or change their destiny.

The scholars think that if they let people know that the life is predetermined, they fear that by knowing this, people will stop doing their karmas, but they fail to understand that men are not allowed to decide to act or not to act, they are pre programmed and even after knowing that the life is predetermined thay cannot stop doing their karmas for which they are programmed.

Can you please share your thoughts on this?

Hari Om.
1.We all go through prarabhdha since the womb-stage. The mentally retarded prarabda (accumulated karmas of previous births) are so strong that he cannot change his prarabda unless he goes through the suffering of mental retardation until free will is developed in him. It may develop in this birth after some suffering or in next birth or in many later births. We cannot know how long it will take. It is in the hands of Time God decided by Karma of his previous births. His Prarabda is so strong that he lost his free will.

2.It is not a clever psychological trick as you think. You have the freedom to act. Don’t you have? Most of us have except some as talked in point 1.

3. The body is given to do karmas. This world is known as Karma Bhoomi. Here the opportunity is given for all beings to modify the prarabda by doing good karmas or bad karmas or just suffering or eking out prarabda.

4.We are not machines to be pre-programmed by some. God never made us to act like machines. The proof is we have free will to do whatever we want.

5. To get rid of Karmas is also through karmas like a thorn is removed with another thorn and both will be thrown away (renounced).

2VenkaiahI want to get sadguru. If that is not possible even ordinary guru who can guide me in spiritual practice is also fine.

What is the way to find a guru?
Nowadays there are many fake gurus. How can I become lucky to get a guru?

Hari Om!
1. You can even get Sadguru (true Guru) provided God is pleased with your spiritual practices. Real true Guru is inner Guru only ie your Atma. Listen to Him and practice devotion towards your favourite God while leading a truthful life.

2. For your information the first Guru is mother and second Guru is father. If they are not satisfied with your behaviour/attitude/service towards them, God will never be satisfied. If God is not pleased, it is very difficult to reach the true Guru. This is the way of finding the true Guru.

3. Do not worry about fake Gurus, if you are truthful, no fake Guru can approach you.

4. Unless you work, there is no luck. Hence practice those as mentioned above and satisfy God by pleasing parents. Then it is easy to find a true.

1NRV AppasamiGood Evening.
Recently one issue caught my attention and pondering over it.
How can one improve upon the luck of a person probability of getting an outcome through lottery: which is not in the control of a person.

I will illustrate with an example. Two students completed Graduation, one in Computer Science another in Economics in India. They both got admission in US Schools for Post Graduation and completed. First one in STEM and he got OPT for three years to work in US, without H1B Visa. Second one in General and he got OPT for one year to work in US, without H1B Visa.

H1B visa in US are limited. Every year 85000 seats are allotted based on lottery. Second one got H1B visa on the first year- by lottery whereas second one could not get allotment for two years and may have to look for other option if he does not get in third. Till that time the uncertainty cripples.

Here the luck place a role, which is not in own control.

How can one improve the chances which is beyond his control? Any spiritual practice?

Hari Om.
1. Spiritual practices practiced for materialistic progress or worldly gains are the lowest type of spiritual practices. Not practiced by the wise.

2. All humans are lucky because only they get the opportunity of reaching God.

3. Luckier are those who are devoted to God while practicing Dharma.

4. The luckiest person is the one who gets the opportunity of attending a Satsang (association with truth). It extends to meeting saints and serving them or meeting the true Guru and serving Him.
