Quetions and Answers
When narrating the history of Mahatmas why are the favourable incidents quoted and not the vice versa?

The tradition is to quote only good things about Mahatmas and elders. Unpleasant incidents happen everywhere in the world. There is no use talking about it. Even though such incidents took place in the Sannidhans of Mahatmas, the point to be observed is, the way the Mahans reacted towards all those things.

Guruji, but You said that if there is Bhakthi then there is are no problems. You said that with Bhakthi our worldly needs like unemployment, attaining wealth and a good health will be satisfied. Isn't that true@f0

It is true. If that is what your Bhakthi seeks, then that will be granted. Great Mahatmas like Meera would never implore God to be freed from petty worldly problems. The happy and unhappy events in their lives were only in the wordly mans perspective. They were in eternal bliss perpetually. .

In my life, I am facing problems all the time. How should I interpret this@f1

The more problems you experience, the closer you are to God. Only in those circumstances, we are able to do Bhakthi wholeheartedly. Life will lose its liveliness if there are no problems. We have to thank God whenever we face problems. We should have faith in God that everything happens for a good cause that is not known to us.

My friend goes to many temples everyday. He does not listen to me when I say that this is not essential. What am I supposed to do@f2

Why do you have to say that@f3 Going to temple for worship everyday is one type of Bhakthi. Reading the Scriptures daily, doing Naama Kirtan daily, visiting Holy Places, offering flowers to the temple regularly or devoting one's self to the service of Sadhus are different ways to do Bhakthi. People can indulge in any act of Bhakthi of their choice. We should not disrespect any of those acts.
