Testimonials from Devotees
Kids don't want to leave Yugal Kunj even after the day is over. They'll definitely miss summer camp!! Thank you to all the amazing volunteers for making this happen especially our youth volunteers!
Nishtha Patel, Atlanta
I wanted to compliment you on how patient you were with me and all the other children (at the youth camp). I loved all your stories that you told us. And when we were celebrating every festival, we also learned a lot about it. I also felt very good attending the camp. It was great to meet a Sanyasi who has been practicing and teaching about God for many years. I learned many valuable lessons from you. Overall, I will use everything you have told me.

Didi Ji is a gifted and effective speaker and always captures the attention of her audience. However, listening to her recent CDs, I was struck by the quantum jump in clarity, focus, and sharpness of expression as displayed in these CDs compared with her earlier CDs which, by the way, were endearing in their own right. I retired from WSU after 35 years during which time U taught graduate courses and also did administrative duties as the Dean of the College. Self-evaluation and evaluation in general come instinctively to me. If I were to rate her as a teacher and religious preacher, she is a truly a superb teacher. Her ability to tackle complex issues of life and happiness are remarkable. I bow to her humbly and respectfully.

Your deep knowledge of our scriptures, along with sweet keertans made it easier for us to understand the lectures. Since you spoke in English, your talks attracted the younger generation also. If is necessary for them and they listened attentively. We at Shiv Mandir appreciate your coming here and enlightening us.

Frequently Asked Questions
Questions and Answers with Didi Ji
It is said that there is no such thing as love in this material world. What is LOVE?
Love is not to be confused with attachment of the mind. In the world, we form attachments wherever we experience, or even suspect fulfillment of self-interest. This attachment is erroneously known as love, and it is selfish by nature. True love is never selfish; it is absolutely selfless. A gopi loves Shri Krishna. As she fans her Lord, tears of happiness stream out of her eyes. Now the gopi must wipe her tears, so she curses her own happiness since it has caused an interruption in serving her beloved. Such is the nature of true love.
How do we move forward from past mistakes?
God and Guru do not look at our past; they only look at our present. So, if you seriously feel remorse for past mistakes and genuinely resolve to no longer committing them you will move forward and ultimately forget about them. Do not allow them to paralyze you so that you are not able to move away from them. It’s not helpful to beat yourself up about them either. You will only feel discouraged. Learn from your mistakes and move on.
How can we realize we are not the body, and dissassociate with bodily pain and pleasure?
We do have a body, and as long as the body remains, we will experience pain and pleasure. The more you realize yourself to be the soul, the more you will disassociate yourself from matters pertaining to the body. However, even an elevated spiritual person experiences physical discomfort and pain, and has to deal with such matters. His attitude towards physical matters, however, changes drastically.
