Q: At what age did you start having this inclination towards spirituality?

Guruji: See, I always had some interest in spirituality since the beginning. We all carry certain samskaras (impressions) through lifetimes; some we imbibe from the environment and some we carry with us through lifetimes. So the seed is always there.

This is not the first time that we have come on this Earth. We have been here many times before as well. If you pay close attention to children, you will see that any child up to the age of three years is able to remember the things about his or her past life. Children also try to express about it in their own way, but many people around them do not take it very seriously. If we actually try to listen and understand them then we will be able to know what their past was like. The past for each and every one of us is very deep and vast, but we never really pay much attention to this. When we go deep in meditation, when we go deeper in our sadhana then all these levels open up. All our past impressions from previous lives also emerge. The good impressions get carried forward with us while the meaningless ones get left behind.


Difference Between Prayer and Meditation

Prayer is asking God, “God, give me this” or saying, “Thank you God for giving me this. God you gave me water. I thank you. You have given me food. I thank you. You gave me pleasure, joy and happiness. I thank you.”

In prayer you are either thanking God or asking something from Him. Meditation is saying, “I am here for you. What do you want to tell me?” Meditation is about listening. Prayer must culminate into meditation. If it doesn’t, then it has not reached its goal.


Q: When we take responsibility, how can we tackle obstacles?

Guruji: The test of your peace is only when there are obstacles. Be thankful for obstacles.


Mantras bring out all the positive energy inside you. A mantra creates the sense of an armor around your body. If you do chanting after pranayama and meditation, then it has a better result. If you do it at a superficial level, then it is not so effective.
