Reincarnation, God, Karma and Faith
Q&A - Reincarnation, God, Karma and Faith - with Sri Swami SatchidanandaRecorded on: October 16, 1982 Swami Satchidananda (Sri Gurudev) answers questions during a satsang at Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville. One of the first questions is about reincarnation. Sri Gurudev speaks at length about the certainty of reincarnation and how the distinctive traits we manifest from the youngest age are what we brought with us from previous lives. He stresses the importance and value of making the best use of the rarity of a human birth and the spiritual progress to be made. In a question about Karma Yoga (selfless service) Sri Gurudev explains how by this practice alone one can attain Self-realization. He reminds us that, "You are not the body, you are not the mind, you are the spirit. As such you don't have hunger, you don't have thirst, you don't have any needs. You are always happy. Remember that." He also gives practical advice for maintaining one's balance amid the waves of the mind and challenges of daily life.Other questions include: Faith in God and Karma Cultivating Self-discipline Choosing the Spiritual Path that is Right for Us How to Know God's Plan for Us Suffering and Evil How to Maintain Purity of Mind and Faith in God ⓟⓒ2007 Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville, Inc.
