4/20/2015 15:29:26SrikanthWhy do hindus believe in doing 'srardham ' (annual death anniversary) of ancestors, even though they believe in the concept of rebirth? 'Srardham ' (death anniversary) is performed every year by Hindu. if the departed soul takes rebirth as believed, it is in some physical form . Then how does those rituals reach to ancestors? So some or other is performing those rituals for our souls at present even though we exist ?sriworldpeace@gmail.comNo

What can reading epics like ramayana and mahabharat teach us? Will it teach us politics, how to behave with people in daily life? Are there any examples in these epics that tell us how to deal with the typical politics in our daily life and i really wonder and have a strong query that how can these epics help us in our daily life.

In spirituality is there really a state, where you dont experience joy pain insult praise anything.. i have read this somewhere and i have always had this question that is such a state really possible where your ego is dissolved and you dont feel sadness or joy? If this state is true..then how can one reach this stage.?

Nothing is intrinsically good or bad, only the intention makes it so.. So, the terrorists killing the people who are not worshipping their god, are with good intentions. They are doing great job according to them. How these implications are correct?

Why is that we are afraid to spend time with ourselves ?

Whenever I attempt to spend time with my own inner self, I end up with a kind of fear. I sit down in silence and I start thinking about myself in search of self realization. This is followed by too many questions and I finally end up with the question 'Who am I ?' At that point everything gets black out and at times I would feel like my soul is trying to escape out of my body. Then it takes some 10 to 30 mins to convince myself saying "you are a human being, your name is Sunil, so and so are you parents and friends..." and so on. This fear threatens such that I am convinced to either switch on the TV again or take my mobile phone well before I get such thoughts.

After the mahabharat war, who were the people to heaven and who went to hell? Because a few days ago, i read an article that duryodhan went to heaven i was a bit astonished by this. Also what might be the reasons that duryodhan went to heaven even after doing the wrong?

I was in love with one girl. Some reasons prevented our marriage. I married another girl under varied circumstances. I tried to be loyal but failed miserably. I don't find peace in my life. I am in deep pain and wish to associate with my love. But don't want to hurt my wife and don't want to spoil her life. At the same time, I am not to do justice with her as mentally I am not stable.
What Dharma suggest in this situation?

5/8/2015 16:54:25Manish A.ShettyCan truth be concealed?
This is a reader question from an an avid reader of your blog! :) I wanted to get your perspective on whether the ultimate truth can be suppressed or concealed? The veda says the Truth cannot be suppressed and always is the ultimate victor. But, In this kali yuga, we often see that people manipulate the truth to tailor the truth according to their needs. While people like salman khan are trying very hard to manipulate the real truth (and being quite sucessfull at it yet, by using thier philanthropy shield), there are many others who easily get away with the crime. I would love to know your thoughts on this! :) Thank you

11/23/2016 0:48:46AnonHow come procreation is somehow acceptable? Krishna says, “I am sex life which is not contrary to religious principle", in the context of sex between a married couple( or atleast that's how most translations described it). Why are married people given leeway and procreation is promoted? They say it's simply because they understand that not everyone can be a celibate but aren't childbirths worse for nature? In the sense you make space for a soul to come and go through this same drama. Some parts scriptures say that Nature/Maya lures you in and you should beware but then they go ahead, 'expanding nature by giving birth is okay because that's what it wants to do'. Does a soul ever want to give birth? How can it, it's said to be whole and sexless. What is keeping a society alive going to do( I know we are quite dependant on the system by now but isn't the point to move beyond it?)
Also, do you have any insight on whether people are urged to have sex by the souls who want body or do humans simply get pregnant and then a soul enters it?
Thanks, I like your posts. :)

5/13/2017 12:22:32Divyanshu ChhabraGuru Dronacharya's Righteousness and Criticisms ? Guru Dronacharya goes through a lot of criticism for his actions. Like refusing to teach Karna and Eklavya and also using Bhramastra for ordinary soldiers. What circumstances made him take such actions even after knowing what he's doing is wrong. Can you throw some light.
The second question is that while Guru Dronacharya was living at Hastinapur (presently Gurugram) did he also build some consecrated place for his disciples which is still preserved?

5/28/2017 10:52:53VinodI don't feel like doing anything. I found your articles very helpful and thought to ask you a something.

Question:

I have been feeling this thing since something where I don't feel like doing anything. I have a job but I don't feel like doing it, I know I want to start some business but I don't feel like doing anything regarding that. I just open my computer thinking doing some work but I never get my self to do it. I also lost my concentration. I can't concentrate on something for more than 2 minutes and I get bored after that. Its just I plan something and I never do it.

Could you please explain what is this and how to get our of this?

Thank you
