Good morning. I would like to ask this gentleman a question and I want to assure you I do it with the greatest respect, because I am a believer in the Deity. I want to know why, when he speaks of God, he uses the pronoun 'He'. Does he believe that the Spirit he is speaking of is masculine?
I was brought up in my daily life to ask God to help me with the things that I wanted out of life. But now I find that I don't have any of the things I wanted, and now God is asking me to do things for Him rather than to expect things from Him.
This gentleman must have come from India. One thing about America is that it is very rich. We have plenty of everything here, and a dozen kinds. There is no reason to be without anything here as far as material wealth is concerned. Tell me, if you are a man of God, why did you leave the people of India who really and truly need help of every kind — spiritual and material? Why did you leave the country that needs it so badly to come to the richest country, and perhaps the richest city in the world, that really doesn't need anything more? Also, how have you gone up in the material scale in your own life since you left your country and came here?
I had a deeper study of religion for about seven years, which gave me a closer relationship to God. I tried to see the good in everyone around me, always to see them as God, as spiritual beings, as good children. At this time I lost a son in an accident. How am I supposed to accept this in my life? Is it God's Plan, or is this my reward for being good? I was sincerely trying to do good at this time. I was a nurse, and I did my work saying, "God, this is for You. I can do anything, no matter how unpleasant it is, since it is for You."
I would like to know how much money you have in the bank?
When I went to visit
Yesterday and today
It takes time
I am so poor and weak
Stay within me
Yet you smile
Three kinds of faith
The Core of India's Light
Laosen does the impossible
Questions and answers
In the pictures I take of you blessing people I see you blessing them at various places on their heads. Are you giving them different types of blessings?
I imagine that there is a thousand-petaled lotus up on the top of the heads, and you can see the petals and, with accuracy that I really study, touch the different parts.
Guru, whenever a really spiritual or devoted feeling comes to me, I always sneeze. This breaks the mood completely and I never regain it.
Guru, will the soul of the painting that you did yesterday take an incarnation, and if it does, what will happen to the painting?
Guru, yesterday when you looked for a place to sign and date the painting, you walked the whole length of the painting, and then came back. Then you put the date in the most dynamic part of the painting. Was there any special significance to that?
Has the soul of America taken human incarnation?
I take the vibration of other people easily. How can I transform this into a divine quality?
Guru, what is the significance of the Bengali in your songs, as opposed to the songs that are in English?
For a knowledge-teacher he did not care
