Que.1 Master, can you tell us the difference between wishful thinking and destiny?
Babaji – Wishful thinking is what you think,destiny is what takes place.

Babaji – Call it whatever you want.
Que.3 Master, is it wrong to beat our children as a form of punishment?
Babaji – Brother, it is always better to explain and talk to your children with love and affection.Nothing has ever been gained by violence.Try to reason with your children and give them your point of view till they understand.What can be gained with love cannot be gained with beating or punishment.
Que.4 I am initiated by Maharaj ji and I want t see my Master. How much of Maharaj ji do we see in you?

Que.5 Why does an honest man suffer the most?
Babaji – Again it is your own conception.How do you know that it is their suffering?To them it might be and mean honest happiness.!
]\\Que.6. Please tell me the easiest method how to concentrate my mind.
Babaji– Brother, when we are busy doing some important work or busy studying for an exam, we do not like even music to disturb us and we get up to switch off the music. We close our ears to any outside sound.Also we switch off the TV because we do not wish to see anything else. We also isolate ourselves from other people because we cannot do our work properly while we are talking with other people. Similarly we can concentrate on our meditation only when we close our eyes, ears and lips and direct our mind to the inner eyes, ears and lips.
Ques.7.Babaji, I have heard the Satsang of Huzur Maharaj Ji since many years. Since the last ten years I am listening to your Satsang. I have a lot of time so I read a lot of Santmat books too. Now I feel no interest in this world. I don’t feel any pleasure in attending any parties or social functions.The only pleasure I get is in having your Darshan or in attending your Satsang or in mixing with people who talk about our Guru or on Santmat topic. When I come to know about the dates of your Satsang programme in various places, I feel tempted to follow you in all those places to get your Darshan and listen to your Satsang.But then we are given a notice at our Satsang centre that we should not follow you. There is no Hukum to do so. Babaji, on the one hand you make us turn away from this Sansar (worldly things) and on the other hand when we want to catch you, you don’t allow us to do so. Now tell me what we should do? May we please follow you to all those places or not?
Babaji-Brother, I know that a notice is sent to all the Satsang centres,which is read out to all the Satsangis. But most of the people do not give any importance to that notice and do as they please. They think that they are going for Darshan and Satsang and what harm can come from it. Yes no harm can come from this but let me tell you that such people come here empty handed and go back home empty handed too. They get no benefit from coming after me. Even if they were to sit 24 hours in front of their Guru, they will not gain anything. And the persons who control their mind and respect the Hukum get the grace of their Guru in their own homes itself. The Master fills them with Daya Meher.Brother, the mind wants so many things. But tell me, is the mind greater or is Hukum greater?
Satsangi:Yes Babaji Hukum is greater Babaji.
Babaji-Then we should live in Hukum. Only then we will gain Guru ki khushi(Guru will be pleased with us)
Que.8.when we read the stories of the Saints we find that they too felt (tadap) an unquenchable desire for their Guru’s Darshan and many times wept too.For example Sardar Bahadur Ji Maharaj always had TADAP for the darshan of His Guru.
Babaji-It is good that you took the name of Sardar Bahadur Ji. You must have read that when Bade Maharaji was taken ill and admitted into a hospital at Amritsar, He gave orders that no one should leave the Beas Dera. But each and everyone made some or the other excuse and went to the hospital to have the Darshan of their Guru. Only Sardar Bahadur Ji did not go anywhere and stayed in the Dera.He remained in The Hukum. Did he not have TADAP for his Guru’s Darshan? He kept respect for His Guru’s Hukum. And we all know what He gained. It would be good if you too should remain in Hukum.
Que.9.Babaji, since the last four months I am very troubled and unhappy. Please have Daya Meher upon me.
Babaji: Sister, God’s Daya Meher is always upon us. Without His Daya Meher we would not be here.
The only thing that is lacking is our faith and trust. Our Trust is not strong.God who has the power to give also has the power to know.Pray to the God who will give you everything without having to ask for anything.Just have Faith and keep you attention in Bhajan/ Simran. Everything will be fine in due course of time.
