On our Real Identity

The question "Who am I?" is not a philosophical football meant to be kicked around coffeehouses by pseudointellectuals. It's a real-life question. Nothing is more important and more relevant than to know who you are.

On World Peace

On Religious Fanaticism

There is nothing more dangerous to real religion than fanatics who seek to lord over others by force in the name of God.

There's a saying: "Misery likes company." So-called religious fanatics are so miserable that they want to create as much havoc in society as possible. They want others to join them in their misery.

* Because the word “guru” means teacher, it is often used to refer to teachers of all kinds—be they teachers of music, ayurvedic medicine, cooking, etc. The title “Jagad Guru” is normally used to refer to spiritual teachers who have disciples all around the world from different places, nationalities, faiths, etc. However, in the deepest sense, “Jagad Guru” means a self-realized spiritual master whose teachings are relevant to and can be applied in the personal lives of every person—regardless of their ethnicity, nationality, or sect.
