QUESTIONS BY SADH-SANGAT, ANSWERS BY Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan

1.  Which type of sumiran is more fruitful, one by sitting in solitude and other by working, walking alongside?
A.  If any person performs sumiran during walking, sitting, standing and doing business and continues to remember God every time, then he becomes habitual gradually.  Now when he sits in solitude, his soul vacates all the nine doors and tends to reach the tenth door earlier and enjoys the presence of God earlier.  Therefore, it is better to sit in solitude and continue sumiran.

2.  What is meant by karma (actions)?  How do these affect our life?
A.  Human beings while performing the daily routine do any good or bad deeds through talking or by action by the use of human organs.  These are called karmas.  If we do bad acts we must reap bad results.  If we do good acts, we must enjoy positive results.  The best deed for human being is the recitation of Gurumantra.  It results in salvation and his spirit enjoys freedom from the cycle of births and deaths.

3.  Some people practice fraud, falsehood, and show business even after being bestowed with Gurumantra. Why?
A.  Because hypocrisy is prevalent these days.  Wishing to be millionaires overnight and multiplying their cash manifolds continues to be the dear desire of their heart from the very beginning.  Such people remain prisoners of greed throughout.

4.  If we feed birds and animals after uttering the Nara (true slogan) or after the recitation of Gurumantra, then will this food help them to cut their bad deeds?
A.   Like the saying, “You are what you eat”, if we feed birds and animals after uttering true slogan (Nara) or after the recitation of Gurumantra, this will definitely help in reducing the effect of their bad deeds.

5.  If we recite Gurumantra at our home and never attend the satsang, is it okay?
A.  The sapling of Naam needs the nourishment of water of satsang continuously.  If a satsangi continues to attend the satsang regularly, it helps him in refreshing the memory of Satguru and about true words.  Thus, he is saved from the bad deeds upto a great extent.  Hence, to attend satsang is a must.

6.  Do the satsangis suffer more pain during their lifetime here in this world than any other ordinary individual?
A.  The dirt of bad deeds done by human beings during the past births is accumulated over his spirit.  Everyone has to suffer according to his sins.  In the case of satsangi or his past sins are to be accounted for during this present human birth only, therefore they suffer more.  But it results in ending the cycle of births and deaths.  If a satsangi wants to lessen the bad effects of his past deeds, he needs a lot of recitation of Gurumantra and also do the selfless service of humanity.  In the case of non-satsangi his cycle of birth and death continues indefinitely and they suffer for a longer period.

7.  If Satguru (supreme saints) are free from the cycle of birth and death, then why do they come to this world again and again?
A.  Saints are free from the cycle of births and deaths.  They are actually a form of God himself.  They do not take birth due to their accumulated deeds, but they come here due to the humble request of suffering humanity to liberate them.  Therefore they have to take human form just for the sake of the liberation of helpless spirits.

8.  Is the age of a person fixed on the basis of number of breaths or a fixed tenure?  Please clarify.
A.  When a human being takes birth, he brings a wealth of breaths with him.  That treasure of breaths is fixed by God.  Now it depends upon him whether to spend them quickly or slowly.  If he does so slowly then his life is prolonged.  If he spends them quickly his life is shortened.

9.  If a satsangi commits a mistake, is he punished everytime?
A.  Yes, if a satsangi commits a mistake, punishment is a must.  This punishment has to be suffered either here or in the spiritual stages.  If that satsangi begs pardon from the supreme saint and resumes recitation of Gurumantra, then he is excused from this punishment.

10.  Can supreme saints shed light on the past deeds of a person?
A.  Yes, supreme saints can reveal the past deeds of human beings.  Because he is not different from God.  Actually, there is no mystery between him and God.  They can reveal all the good and bad deeds of human beings done by him during his present birth or even during past births, but they never reveal the secrets of others.

11.  Can the recitation of true words fulfill every desire of a human being?
A.  Recitation of Gurumantra is aimed at reaching salvation and to meet the almighty.  Those satsangis who pursue this noble cause with strong determination they are surely bestowed with darshan (vision) of the Almighty and ultimately salvation.  But if his demand is not genuine, it is never granted by saint Satguru.

12.  What is meant by luck?  Can it be changed?
A.  The circle of karmas is very vast, which can never be diminished without the mercy and kindness of Satguru.  We have to suffer the effects of bad deeds of past births during this present birth.  Moreover, new deeds of present birth are also being added to the total of past deeds.  This system is known as his fate or luck.  If a man adopts Gurumantra and does selfless service to humanity, then and only then he can get rid of this vicious circle of life and death.

13.  Can this body which we are possessing now in this mortal world is also available in the spiritual worlds?

A.  It is a fact that the Satguru is almighty.  Nothing is impossible for him.  But the human beings sometimes demand such things from him which are not worthy of him or he does not believe fully in his Satguru or he does not follow his dictates in full or he does not comply with his directions faithfully – all these things result in the non-fulfillment of his demands.

15.  When we try to recite Gurumantra, it is felt sometimes that some power is opposing it.  Why so?
A.  The power which opposes us during recitation is called the mind.  This mind is an agent of the death god.  It does not allow us to concentrate.

16.  Please suggest an appropriate time for recitation of Gurumantra.
A.  The recitation can be continued for all the 24 hours of a day, even while eating, drinking, sitting, standing, walking or doing the chores of the daily routine.  Even then the best period of Brahmamuhurat (between 2 to 4 am in the morning) is the best because all the atmosphere is quite calm and tranquil.  Hence concentration is quite easy at that time.

17.  If one falls asleep during meditation, does one get some benefit even then?

A.  Yes, for the person of truthful nature and a person desirous of getting salvation needs the boon of Gurumantra.  Only the true words of God are a truth, which is the food for the spirit.  This increases the strength of the spirit.  This spiritual strength is the key of success.  If a man possesses a strong spirit, he will never be betrayed from the path of truth.  So it is important to adopt Gurumantra.  Otherwise, also, Gurumantra is the only way to achieve salvation.  After the adoption of Gurumantra, one can achieve salvation and get rid of the vicious circle of birth and death.

20.  What is the difference between a person who meditates and one who does not?
A.  One is that who can see God when he desires and other is that who is deprived of this benefit.  The strength of vision of God is the only key to move further.  The face of the meditator glows with the brilliance while the nonbeliever is always drowned in worldly worries.  Those who meditate regularly are always full of confidence to the brim.

21.  Which seat we should take while meditating?
A.  Adopt any type of seat which is not uncomfortable but that seat must also not be too comfortable to lure one to sleep.

22.  Can a true worshipper (satsangi) encounter evil spirits?

25.  Not even a single leaf can tremble without the wish of God, then why a man is asked as to why he does not attend satsang, recite the true words, and search the saints?
A.  It is true that even a leaf cannot move without the desire of God. The only man has been bestowed with a power of self-decision, which all other creatures are helpless because they are slaves of death god.  Man possesses the sense to distinguish between good and bad, freedom and self decision are also his boon, under their influence, he can decide his wish to perform good or bad he likes.  Even then if anybody says that even a leaf cannot be moved without the wish of god, then he says so due to the pressure of his mind.
26.  Those persons who do not practice the recitation of true words even after getting Gurumantra, do they also get salvation after death?
A.  That person who is bestowed with Gurumantra gets his soul insured and saved from the vicious cycle of eighty-four lakh births and deaths.  Now those ones who do not practice meditation here, their souls are held up in upper regions of the spiritual world so that they may compensate for the lack of meditation there.  Those souls have to strive hard for a very long period of time and face a lot of agony and pain for want of darshan (sight) of God, which is beyond tolerance for them.  Ultimately when those souls are quite pure and clean then God promotes them to his own abode the sachkhand and they get salvation in the end.

27.  The mind is found indulged in worldly thoughts during the period of recitation of Gurumantra.  Is that recitation acceptable?
A.  This is but natural for our mind to distract us away from the thoughts of Satguru (God) and indulge in the thoughts of worldly charm, whenever we are sitting in meditation.  If such a thing happens, get alert and try to concentrate on Gurumantra.  Stand up, stroll and repeat the Gurumantra hurriedly for a minute or two, resulting in melting those dirty thoughts away.  Now again continue your meditation peacefully.  Although the period during which you sit in meditation as per the advice of your Satguru is counted yet the real fruit of darshana of almighty and glimpse of cosmic stages can be obtained
By concentrated mind only.

34.  Can any person who has attained God by the dint of prayers, harm others through his spiritual might?
A.  Real devotee and satsangi can never think bad about others.  Although it is a fact that God is enslaved by his devotee it does not mean that the devotee if he wants to do evil to others or wants the evil to happen to others prays to God (Saint Satguru) for it, then perfect saints will grant him his wish.  The question does not arise.  All the spiritual saints, godmen, hermits, mendicants, ascetics always think and do the well being of the world as a whole.
