Those are the
question put to Prof. Anil Kumar and answer by him.So please
before sending any question read the
introduction and make sure
that your question is not yet answer.
Why was Rama commanded to spend 14 years
seems Swami said another prayer: “Annam Brahmaa, Raso Vishnu,
Bhoktho Devo Maheswara.” The question is this: Shall I say
“Brahmaarpanam Brahmahavihi” before eating food, or shall I say,
“Annam Brahmaa, Raso Vishnu, Bhoktho
Devo Maheswara” -- this prayer or that prayer?
Why doesn’t Bhagavan cure Himself? (
How do we know that we are realised?
When He separated Himself from Himself
into many, was there any reduction in bliss? Was His bliss
reduced? Is His bliss now divided, separated? Does He experience
less bliss? (
Before He took a body, was Bhagavan aware
of bliss and Love to the same extent that He is now? (
Does spiritual evolution continue after death?
We have very little time to work in the
organisation. Baba, with all His compassion, is accelerating
everybody’s karma. Please clarify.
There are many people who claim that they
are the reincarnation of Jesus.” (Laughter) “Shall we follow him?
How do you view
depression in a civilised world? (19
How do we deal with
rebirth or reincarnation? How does it reconcile with Adwaitha?
What exactly is rebirth, if only God exists? (19
How should youngsters behave, particularly
when they are overwhelmed by images and news? How should they
How can you pray with absolute faith when
you have to sacrifice? Abraham had to sacrifice his son. Abraham
had to kill his son, as per the command of God. Abraham was called
by God and commanded to sacrifice his son. When I have such a
costly sacrifice, how can I pray to God?
What do you mean by
transformation? Does it mean controlling the senses or eliminating
the ego? When there is Reality inside, what do you mean by
God is goodness. God is
full of values, while man in contrast has no values. Man is
brutal. He’s horrible. He’s crazy. What shall I do now? (12.01.2003)
Bhagavan Buddha left
his family. But wasn’t it His duty to take care of His family? Is
it justifiable that He left his child and wife like that?
What does Bhagavan say about telepathy?
Some people are gifted with telepath. What does Bhagavan say? (12.01.2003)
As the day in the Kali Yuga is 24 hours,
what was the duration of the day in the Dwapara Yuga, or even
before in the Thretha Yuga?
Is there any evidence of life on any other
Why does God come so infrequently? Why
only every 500 years or 1000 years? Why not regularly, like a
train? Why not? (Laughter) Had He been here throughout, arriving
year-after-year, then all our weaknesses could have been prevented
and we would never run away from the path of righteousness -- we’d
never run astray. God could control us if He appeared frequently
and regularly. It would make His job lighter and easier.
There are so many ages
like the Thretha Yuga, Dwapara Yuga and Kali Yuga. Are they
different periods of earth’s evolution, or are they something
Why man? Why are we
here? Why are we created?
What is known about the Golden Age that
Swami often talks about? When will it begin?
Why should I have the goal of liberation
or Self-realisation? After all, why? What is the harm if I am
reborn? What is the harm if I'm to die again? Why not? Then in
this birth, I can enjoy life. In liberation, where is the
enjoyment because you are one with God?
What is the harm in killing an animal?
Because, when you pick a fruit, you’re also killing it. By picking
the fruit, the plant becomes handicapped. Doesn’t the plant suffer
pain? So, this is pain and that is pain. So, what’s the
What is vegetarianism? Is it really eating
leaves and tubers, or something more?
Is there any
significance behind Rama being sent into exile for fourteen years?
Why fourteen years? Why not thirteen? Why not fifteen, why?
(Laughter) What is so special about this number? (05.01.2003)
Are grace and blessings temporary or do
they evaporate after a period of time or after certain actions? (
What is the difference between ‘grace’ and
do we need to say a manthra repeatedly? (
Why do we have to go through this or any life to get Self-realization?
Why didn’t we arrive already Self-realized?
Have you found anyone who is? Also, once you have blessed
something, or asked for something, or chanted a manthra,
why do we have to do it over and over again?
We have many cockroaches moving around our house at night,
creating not only a health hazard, but also
scaring us out of our wits at times. Can you please advise us how
to treat these creatures? How do we treat these invaders with
is the primordial factor that decides one’s gender in this birth?
Why are you a man? How can you afford to be a woman? (Laughter)
So the question here is what decides the gender in each life. Is
it because of our past lives?
What are the steps that
I should take to merge in Him?
see Baba in different forms?
I am a teacher of yoga. I know God is
One. But do you think all the people I see are false? Do you think
it’s all maya, illusion? Do you think they don’t exist? Do
you say it is all a dream?
The husband is very much interested in Baba, but the wife is not.
The wife is an obstacle. So, what should the husband do? He also
has given three alternatives: (Laughter) One -- should he
get divorced from his
wife? Number two -- should he continue along the spiritual path?
Number three -- should he give up the spiritual path?
(Laughter) These are the alternatives – maybe it is like a
multiple-choice question. (Laughter) (08.12.2002)
What shall I do to dine with Bhagavan? To
sleep in the room very close to His bedroom? (Laughter) To
go with Him in His car? To have a peaceful end of life, like His
mother and grandfather had?
Karma, is it individual?
Are countries also bound by karma?
“You said, (he meant me)
very Darshan of Bhagavan will clear you of your karma.
But I'm still suffering from my karma. Has not my karma
been cleared?” (Laughter)

How is it possible to
lose a desire but not shut down the heart? (03.11.2002)
I still have desires. What to do?
When does the Atma leave the body? What happens to the
Atma after death?
In a family situation, if the parent has done
wrong, will the child suffer the bad karma, resulting in
the death of the child?
Is it bad karma
to change from one religion to the other?
Does the Atma
have a religion? (03.11.2002)
Why do some children die at a young age? (03.11.2002)
Would Baba come along with me on my morning walk? (03.11.2002)
