Questions and answers
Guru, recently I was running in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco and I saw the Hare Krishnas' Jaganath parade. They were pulling the Jaganath cart. What struck me was that I didn't get a feeling of spirituality from the parade and the people in it. It made me wonder, are our parades successful from the spiritual point of view?
When you hold a meditation such as the recent one at Woodstock, where many, many people come, but a lot of them aren't very attentive, are you still able to offer something to them?
Can you please speak about the importance of our running the New York City Marathon?
Is there any difference in the consciousness that is portrayed in a colour photograph as opposed to a black and white photograph of the same thing?
Which is better: the black and white or the coloured transcendental?
Guru, have you ever gone backward or forward in time? In science fiction they have time machines where you can go backwards and forwards. Instead of speaking to Krishna in the inner worlds, let us say, have you ever actually gone back to the time of the
and seen him there? Could you actually walk around in a scene that happened hundreds of years ago?
Could you do it even if you had not physically been there at that time?
Can you stand outside of time and see time go all around?
I have heard that if a disciple is close to the Master, he can achieve God-realisation in twelve years. Is this true?
Are you speaking of this incarnation of yours?
Guru, when you give us grades for our meditation, what scale do you use? Do you grade us against what our present capacity is, or what our ultimate Perfection is? What does 100% mean?
Guru, do your inner beings have their own favourite disciples? Do certain inner beings like certain people more than others?
Is that why it is harder to get up after you have been asleep for a longer time? Sometimes when I sleep shorter it is easier to get up.
Are there certain times in the day when you should not sleep?
If we slept for 2 or 3 and a half hours at night and got up for a half hour and read your books or meditated and prayed and then went back to sleep, would that be better?
Nowadays you don't answer questions after you give lectures at universities. Is there a particular reason for that?
A good thought
My earth activities
These are our needs
I and my happiness
An eternal traveler
They all multiply
The core of India's light
Let us try to empty the mind
Lord, my lord
