Q. How can we select our God and Goddess?We are confused because there are more deties
in our tradition.
A. Suddenly with one deity you will feel connected,choose that God or deity.If you do not feel
connected with any one God or deity, continue your seeking.Let the seeking become your God.
Seeking can become your God(Ishta-devata). No need for a particular devata(God).
Q. I always have a longing for chanting Vishnu Sahashranamas but my concentration is scattered. How can I concentrate on all the slokas?
A. Sometime you will enjoy some chanting, then you start deciding-' Oh! It's such an ecstacy and joy, I should have this always, let me start chanting everyday.' NO! you missed the whole thing.
The moment you decide 'let me chant everyday' you created a routine.
Bliss happens to you when you are in choicelessness.The moment you choose bliss, you have chosen suffering because all choice including choosing bliss is choosing suffering.Choice is suffering,choicelessness is bliss!
Do not bother to complete all 1000 names. Just sit with a real beautiful mood, in a very loving way if you can chant even 5-6 names it is perfectly all right.The moment you feel bored close he book and say namaskar and move.Do not do chanting or puja when u don't feel connected when you don't feel the joy. If you are doing it without feeling the joy , you are abusing it!
Q. Can anybody become a master or is he a chosen one?
A. Nobody needs to choose. You need to choose yourself.Fortunately masters are not chosen democratically. Nobody has to vote you , you need to vote for yourself. Decide today that let me live the central core of my existence.
First the decision has to happen and then the experience comes.
Q. Swamiji, I want to know the purpose of our life,world,universe and the purpose of God.
A. Purpose of your life is the purpose of God. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you the purpose of your life. You create purpose of your life out of Your own self.
