Is everything pre-decided by fate?


I would like to ask something related to belief. So we are either stuck in the past memories or stuck about the future, setting up goals and planning according to our goals.

What is my duty towards my parents?


I was a student of this institute and I used to feel very happy because the education here was all about questioning. So we questioned everything, all the belief systems. So as a result the students grow up to be very self-reliant and they know themselves well. But what happens is that they grow distant from their family because of the difference in the belief system. So we may become very confident individuals but what happens is that we become alien to our parents, we don’t fulfill their expectations. So what do you think? There’s a role as a daughter or son to be fulfilled. And there’s a role as an individual as well. So how do we get that balance?

If I am making my own life and somebody curses me and then I’m finished. So what is my role in my life? It’s like energy. Do I influence your energy? Can I control the way you live?

How do I know if I’m sad or depressed?


Sadhguru, this question is something that many of us will be able to relate with. So people are going through a lot in their lives, in their personal and professional lives. So my question is, how will the youth be able to realize the difference between sadness and depression? And, since realizing the problem is the first step of the solution, this is something important. When someone is in depression, they should know and realize, actualize it first.
