Students are in Abundance, Disciples are a Few, But the Devotees are Rare

Subscribe to Guru Punch

It is nothing great to become God or be God. Whether you want or not, all are already Gods. A stone is also a God. You are also a God. Everything is God, God is already there, but it is great to become a devotee. Do you see this? Everything, whether you want it or not, is already God, but the love, devotion, has flowered somewhere. Where the devotion has flowered totally, the flower has blossomed, that is a devotee. Attraction is everywhere, love is somewhere, but devotion is again rare. Devotion is very beautiful. A student comes to a Master, Teacher, and Guru with tears in his eyes. There are so many problems, and when he leaves, he is carrying the same tears, but the quality of the tears is different, it is of gratitude. Still tears flow, but those are of gratitude, of love; it is so beautiful to cry in love.

One, who has cried even once in love, knows the taste of it, of surrender and of devotion and the entire creation rejoices it. The entire creation is longing for only one thing, the transformed tears, from salty tears to sweet tears.

Don’t Go for Quick Money

Subscribe to Guru Punch

In the past century, people had a strong belief, that money earned in an unethical manner will have to be spent in a manner which will not bring them happiness.
They would say, ‘If you earn money unethically, that money will be spent in courts and in hospitals.’
So that consciousness was always there pricking people, and this fear of God, or fear of karma, would ensure that people didn't get into unethical practices.

Today, this is missing. We must re-look at this.

Faith Gives you Immediate Strength

Subscribe to Guru Punch

Faith is a wealth.

If you think, by having faith in God you are doing God a favor, you are mistaken. Faith gives you strength instantaneously. Faith brings you stability, centeredness, calmness and love. You’re having faith in the Guru or God does not do anything to Guru or God. You’re having faith gives you immediate strength. Faith is a great wealth; it is a blessing.

If you lack faith, you have to pray for faith. But to pray, you need faith. This is a paradox.

The Art of Raising Children

Subscribe to Guru Punch

Today, children, from the time they wake up in the morning, they sit like a non-participatory witness in front of the television; isn't it?

Children sit in front of the television and go on surfing channels. The mother comes and says, ‘Hey, come for breakfast’, and they just don’t move. Sometimes, mother has to bring their breakfast in front of the television. This type of culture is no good.

You should limit the time for television, otherwise children will have Attention Deficiency Syndrome.
The brain gets so bombarded with all these images, it fails to register anything else and the kids become so dull later on. They cannot attend to anything.

Not more than one hour of television should be shown to children.

What Happens after Death?

Subscribe to Guru Punch

You will just see the body out there.
Once you come out of the body, you will see your whole life flashing like a movie in a few minutes.

There will be the two questions that will stand:
  1. How much love you gave? Not how much love you received, and
  2. How much knowledge you gained?
This question will come and you will say, ‘I will do better next time’, and that is it. Then there is peace.

It is like, sometimes at night before sleeping you review what all work you have to do the next day. You say, ‘This all has to be done tomorrow. Okay, I will do it’, and then you go to bed, isn’t it!
Same thing happens after death.
Then that intention of what you will do in the next life will bring the next body and the next birth to us. Then we choose our parents, the place, and everything else and then we come to this world!

So nothing to be worried about death!
