Q & A ith Gurudev
Rishimukh|June 2021
When we fail, who is the doer?

Gurudev: Look back and reflect on the many times you have failed. Don’t you now feel that those failures were good for you? When you look back at your failures, you will see that you have learnt something from them, and they have been stepping stones for you to move ahead.

I tell you, when you are on the path, when your heart is clean and when you are meditating, there is no way that you will fail, or go down. It will appear as though you are failing but that little failure is only to get you towards higher success. This is for sure.

In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna promised the world that ‘My devotee will never perish’. It is impossible for a devotee to perish!

A devotee is the one who has a pure heart. If you are cunning which is why you got failure, then you have to bear the cost. But if you are doing good things and failing, never bother about it. You are only going to go up.
