Is there a secret relationship between enlightened masters and physics?


Listen; are you a student of physics? If you are that is great! If not, don’t be sorry! Students of arts can also get enlightened, no problem. Yes, Lord Krishna also says that first gain knowledge of the elements. Meaning we never considered physical sciences and spiritual knowledge separate. The one merges into the other.

What is the knowledge of the elements? How many elements are there? There are five elements; earth, water, air, fire, ether. Then mind, intellect, ego. All these are counted among the principal elements. As you gain deeper knowledge of these elements, you arrive at the knowledge of the soul. This is a very good thing.

It is only now that people have started talking about Quantum Physics. The fact that this entire universe is made up of a single element has been mentioned in India long ago by Adi Shankaracharya and also in the Vedas before him. If you read Yoga Vasistha, it would seem as though you were reading Physics. So, modern science is completely related to ancient knowledge.

How should one address the Guru?


Sadguru is one who takes us towards truth. Now you can have a guru for veena or violin. You can have a guru for football also. One who teaches you karate can also be called a guru. One who teaches music what will you call them? Guru.

In this manner you have many gurus. One who takes you into spiritual knowledge is known as ‘Sadguru.’ These words are not necessary, whether you say ‘Gurudev’, ‘Guru’, ‘Guruji’, ‘Sadguru’, whatever you say it is the feeling behind it that is important.
I go one step further to say, ‘let love be love, do not give it a name.’


Relationships have limits, but what is one’s relationship to one self? The relationship with the soul is absolute. If you feel so then let it remain so; isn’t that a good idea? Don’t accuse it of being a relationship. Let love be love, don’t give it a name.

However, it is said in our country, in our scriptures, that a mother’s love is ten times more than a father, and a Guru’s love is a hundred times more than a mother's. All these measurements are there, but I would say consider it beyond all this. If something was felt in the heart, a spark arose, let it remain as such, why name it?
