Part I — Questions and answers
Question: Guru, many years ago I told you that my father had an unusual experience. You said that it was a very high experience, but my father did not value it. When somebody gets a very high experience like this from God, does God not know that the person might not be ready for it, or might not take it the right way?
Question: Why is Thomas Jefferson not fully appreciated?
Question: Guru, with seekers from established spiritual cultures whom we meet around the world, one of the most difficult things is to make them feel how our path is different from the traditional spirituality they were raised with. I am wondering if you could offer some advice.
Question: Guru, are you offering special performances for the strongman Hugo Girard in response to something unique in his soul, or is there some special inner reason?
Question: Guru, can you please talk about the experience you had before you realised God?
Question: Guru, what is the most important spiritual quality of America, and what has to be improved? How does it apply to the spiritual seekers here in America?
Question: Is the Nobel Prize for Literature as significant as the Nobel Peace Prize?
Question: Guru, people say that there are children being born all over the world right now who will help the progress of the world. They say that these "crystal children" are very, very meditative and spiritual. I thought I might have had one among my students. She was really special. I am wondering if you would like to say anything about these children.
Question: Your main Centre is in Jamaica, New York, but can you tell us something about your old Centre in Jamaica, West Indies?
Question: How can we better listen to our inner voice?
Question: Guru, your family members had such love for you and such oneness with you. Is there anything we can do to increase our love for you and our oneness with you?
Question: Guru, is there anything special we can do on our own birthday to please you the most?
Question: Guru, I have heard that cats can take away your spiritual progress if they are around you. Is that true? I am worried because I have a cat at home.
Question: Guru, when you give us a spiritual name, is it a quality that we should develop in this life, or is it a natural, eternal quality of the soul?
Question: How can I know when I should be in your physical presence and when I should be manifesting you? I am not sure if the answer will be personal or if it will apply to all the disciples.
Question: My question is about work. Can one make equally fast spiritual progress if one is working outside of our Divine Enterprises?
Question: I have heard it said that if Jesus Christ could have lived a longer time, it would have been better.
Question: Once you were joking that you gave a disciple bad advice. How could an Avatar do something that is not right?
Question: In a book about Sri Aurobindo, the Mother spoke about the descent of the overmind, and I was wondering if you could explain that.
Question: When your feet first touched the soil of America, was there any inner experience that you could share with us?
