Query: I am so lucky to have chanced upon your
website today.. Niyati (destiny) indeed helped me discover you, Gurudev.. i feel so relaxed and believe that
i can talk to God directly.. I wish to learn and learn at your feet
I have done something wrong. What is the way to ask for forgiveness to mistakes committed
When in distress people remember God... how many remember
God in happier times? At a moment of time in life I may had been just as you! The difference lay only in
perception. In times of distress most human beings leave things to God or chance! In my life, I made it a
goal of life to see and meet God in this very life so that I could ask god all I ever wanted
I never waited for anyone... even elders in family to reply
to my queries! Most appeared blank when confronted with lots of queries relating to god! In every house... in every
community... in every state or country people keep waiting for God Almighty to set things right! If all kept
waiting then who would precipitate karma was my query?
Getting no positive answers in life I started in search of God 13 years of age! I had to know
abstract truths of life talked about by most but none seemed to walk! I had to know how cosmic system was run... I
also wanted to know mystery behind whole cosmos... the reason why God created cosmos and life supporting planets
like mother earth!
Everything related to spirituality from A to Z is available in sacred Bhagavad Gita of
Hinduism yet none seems to travel the path! Most indulged superficially... the prime aim of most always remaining
accumulation of materialistic riches beyond requirements! Some desired fame beyond compare... others joined the
race for special recognition in society!
Whatever the goal of life... none was truly interested in God Almighty! Everyone wanted welfare of self... be one a
commoner or an accomplished religious preacher!
In your journey of life you did what you thought best in prevailing circumstances yet you
grieve over the matter... why? Committing errors and omissions is part of life! If we have committed a mistake...
we shall definitely suffer consequences of the same... so says law of karma... the doctrine of karma given to
mankind by Lord Krishna in Mahabharata!
The essence of forgiveness is detailed in various essays on my various websites yet things
are not clear to you! Who can help you in the circumstances! Every single human being is master and controller of
life... more so the present destiny! Still, we grieve and ponder! The human form is highest manifest stage yet
human beings self-pity... why?
We do not want to dive deep into bottomless pit of spirituality! What stops us from proceeding ahead on spiritual
path! Nothing... none can stop us in our journey of life... not even God Almighty! All depends upon our goal of
life... our willingness to travel that extra mile... perform our karma... which is so much essential for traveling
spiritual path judiciously and sincerely!
In my entire life of 54 years, I have yet to find a single person sincerely trying to reach
God! Most do not want to understand even basics of religion or spirituality! I have yet to find a person who could
clearly define to me meaning of religion or spirituality! Religious and spiritual travelers are many but sincere
seekers totally missing!
During world philosophers meet in Pune in 1997... I was sitting right besides Dalai Lama and
had I chanced to ask definition of Dharma from him... he would have appeared blank. Why? Understanding tenets of
religion or spirituality is not forte of such religious preachers who follow rules of book! The meaning of religion
and spirituality stems from within!
By your act of omission whether you have sinned gravely or not... who is the judge in present circumstances!
Assimilate the definition of karma... Dharma and you shall understand meaning of forgiveness in entirety! If we
err, God Almighty always opens a path to redeem ourselves! You have to realize the truth of life on your
However intelligent the teacher may seem... it is intelligence of student that is always at
stake! Every teacher desires all students coming first in class but one always comes first and the other last! If a
sincere seeker of spirituality follows my articles/essays on my various websites ceremoniously... one can
definitely reach stage of enlightenment within one's lifetime!
Before everything else we need to understand meaning of religion or spirituality... meaning
of karma and dharma! Bhagavad Gita... the gist of sacred Bhagavad Gita simply cannot be assimilated literally... it
demands reading in between the lines! Understanding essence of all 700 shlokas verses contained in Bhagavad Gita is
the real essence of life!
In a nutshell I have only to say that forgiveness is a very important
aspect of life practicing which human beings finally forgave one and all! Unless we forgive one... we cannot
assimilate the essence of spirituality! Forgiveness demands highest level of patience, persistence and perseverance
that can ever be practiced by human beings!
Practice of forgiveness is necessitated on path of pure spirituality! If we have erred in
present life knowingly or unknowingly... we can definitely undo our doings of present life by repenting for the
same but what of deeds committed knowingly or unknowingly in previous lives! Unless all negative deeds of previous
lives get negated... we never rise higher on spiritual path!
The doctrine of Prarabdha karma plays a vital role in traveling spiritual path sincerely and
ceremoniously! It is only by learning intricacies of spiritual path one finally overcame negative residual balance
of karma from previous manifestations! The moment negative residual balance of karma from previous manifestations
becomes zero... one finally manifested destiny forever!
