POSITIVE vs NEGATIVE FEELINGS

In today's world hardly anybody trusts anyone anymore. Many parents don't trust their children; many children mistrust their parents and even their own brothers and sisters, We don't trust our neighbors, nor our politicians. Nations often interact on a basis of mistrust as well.



It is as if people don't feel they have enough time to trust; they don't have the time it… Continue

Sometimes I hush up things in my mind. I get mental torments thereby. What shall I do to get rid of this habit?

You must be frank and as simple as a child. Then only you will get the divine light. You

will grow spiritually. Even if it is a horrible crime, you must admit it before a Guru. Then only

you will get his sympathy and protection. By admitting your faults before others, you remove the

effects of bad actions. It serves as a Prayaschitta or expiatory action.

Asana Intensive - just finished

OM - loving greetings from Westerwald. We've just finished a very inspiring "Asana Intensive" here at Haus Yoga Vidya - especially inspiring for me, as teaching always pushes me to practice a bit more intensively. I'll be teaching a similar seminar in Bad Meinberg during the last week of July.

How is it possible that a Creator, so full of love, created a world and a nature where animals can live only by killing other animals that have to endure terrible pain and suffering? ...

Nobody can give me a satisfactory answer.If men kill each other, it is sin; they need not. But, animals cannot live without killing the other animals for food. What do you say? We are anxious for your opinion.



God’s love for the created universe knows no bounds; He cannot be held responsible for

the experiences of created beings. God does not punish or reward anyone in a personal way; it is

one’s own actions, sinful or good, that works as the cause of experience… Continue

Importance of a Sadgurudev

Every one has his own understanding level on each segment of material life where we most of the situations directly face and interact so the results come accordingly which we accept willingly and unwillingly both but since we see the results of happenings by our gross eyes thus we find no options except taking them as they come.

Whereas in spiritual life on finding truth of divine knowledge and about God which are much hidden and the base to believe is one’s own experiences on the…

May I enquire how the power of concentration increases?

Concentration increases by curtailing your wants and desires, by observing Mouna for

two hours daily, by remaining in seclusion in a quiet room for one or two hours daily, by

practicing Pranayam, by prayer, by increasing the number of sittings in meditation in the evening

and at night, by Vichar, etc.

How can I control my anger?

Q: How can I control my anger?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Anger comes out of your love for perfection. Create some space for imperfection around you. Make a list of all the things you consider to be wrong. Then have people around you do everything on that list! When you get angry, just observe that sensation. Observe how your teeth are clenching and how the mind becomes. Take a few long deep breaths and see if it changes. However, I have no experience, since I myself have never had this…

Meditation

Meditation is not contemplation Meditation is not concentration Meditation is not about doing something; rather it is about doing nothing Meditation being in the state of awareness and unconditional witnessing.Now awareness is a tricky matter People think they know what awareness is, but it is a misconception Meditation is experiencing and enjoying the inner void – though one may say that this enjoying is a mind-oriented experience Both joy and sorrow are experienced by the mind – and…

You say that forgiveness should be practiced. Being not the final authority in my office, I cannot save my subordinates from getting punished. ...

If I conceal their offences

or mistakes, I will not be doing my duty properly and this may one day get me into trouble.

When I forward the reports of my subordinates, they are punished and I feel sorry for it.

What should I do in such cases?



You can forgive the minor mistakes of your servants and subordinates. This cannot bring

in any trouble. Keep your conscience clean. Warn them whenever they commit mistakes. As

you are in the Vyavaharic field, you will… Continue

50% of our unhappiness is created by the mind. We create it for ourselves

50% of our unhappiness is created by the mind. We create it for ourselves
even though we don't want to be unhappy. We do not know that unconsciously,
unknowingly, we are creating unhappiness for ourselves. That is the truth.

Why do different prophets give contradictory teachings?

Prophets are born from time to time to remove a catastrophe and establish Dharma. They

preach according to the time, place, conditions and requirements. Lord Buddha preached, “Don’t

kill”. Guru Govind Singh preached, “Kill”. When Buddha was born, people were sacrificing

many animals. He had to preach Ahimsa to stop killing. Guru Govind Singh had to infuse

chivalry in man. One prophet preached, “Renounce and go to the forest”. Sri Ramanuja

preached, “Enjoy at home. Have… Continue

I never intend to do any evil action. Is it my responsibility when I do it? If it is, will God forgive me? If He forgives me, what about the fruit of that action? ....

I write to

you candidly, for I have chosen you to be my noble guide. Please forgive me and help me.



You are certainly responsible for the action. God never forgives. Action brings on its

own fruits. Through Prayaschitta or expiatory rites you can destroy the evil effects of a bad

action. You actually suffer in Prayaschitta. Hence the evil effects are washed off. The evil

Karma will not follow you to the next birth. Sincere repentance, Japa, fasting and charity… Continue

Why should God drive me to do a bad action?

God never drives you to do any bad action. He is always the Sakshi or witness. Your

own nature, your own evil Samskaras, force you to do actions. “Svabhavastu Pravartate” says

the Gita (Ch. V-14). You lack in Viveka or discrimination. That is the reason why you become

a slave of passion. God has given you Buddhi to check passion. Why don’t you use it then?

Can you please give me some detailed practical hints to get non-attachment in mind in our every action?

Think that you are an instrument (Nimitta) in the hands of God when you work. Egoism

and respectability will vanish. Don’t expect fruits for your actions (Nishkamya). How can you

expect fruits when another, viz., God, is working through you? Further, when you are aware that

the world is full of miseries, what is the use of coming back again into the world ? You are a toy

in the hands of God. He holds the string. He is the Sutradhar. Do all actions from a sense of

duty.… Continue
