Question: In your New Year's Message you mentioned in the last two lines 'My Transcendental Silence-Crown and my Universal Sound-Throne'. Can you say something about that?

Question: My father committed suicide eleven years ago and it still disturbs me. He had cancer and had three months to live, so he took his life.

Question: Does God necessarily fulfil your desire if it is based on greed?
Question: My question is regarding manifestation and spirituality. Often, I find that more manifestation means less opportunity to become spiritually stronger. How does one find the proper balance?

Question: I am wondering about the advisability of a very small Centre having public meditations as a form of manifestation.
Question: How can I know if I am making progress?
Question: In some kinds of manifestation I find that I don't often have as much fun because they are more competitive. Should those certain things not be done?
Question: How can I be more obedient?
