Q: What is the purpose of God creating the world? A: This is a transcendental question or Atiprasna. You will know the purpose when you attain Self-realisation or Brahma Jnana.

Q: When I concentrate, so many thoughts arise in my mind. How can I avoid them? Can I suppress them? A: Do not try to suppress them with force. The thoughts will manifest with redoubled force. They will rise up frequently also. You will tax your will and waste your energy. Be a silent witness of these thoughts. Say unto yourself: "I have no concern with these thoughts." Be indifferent. Al luseless worldly thoughts will die by themselves.

Q: Why does evil exist in the world? A: Change the angle of vision or Drishti. All evils will disappear. Evil is negative good. Evil exists to glorify good. It has a raison d’etre, reason for its existence. Evil and good are relative terms. What is good at one time is evil at another time. What is good for one is evil for another. Understand this and become wise. Behold the one Atman in all forms and beings. Evil and good are mental creations. Transmute evil into good by Atma-Drishti. There is good in evil also.

Q: How to lead the life of unity? A: This is attained by service, charity, sharing what you have with others, cultivating cosmic love and realising the one Atman seated in the hearts of all, through constant Brahmachintana or meditation on Atman or Soul of the Universe or God.
