Making Wishes

This week, it’s time to learn to make wishes.

Many times i have heard Guruji say in satsang, tonight make a sincere wish from your heart, before going to sleep… many people do have things they really want, and most have reported that when they wished for it, they got it. But most people don’t know what to wish for…. so here is guide to making wishes πŸ™‚


As in asking questions to the Guru, the first thing you need is to be completely sincere. With love in your heart and with utmostΒ sincerity, make your wish.

Your wish should be expressible in one small sentence. Don’t make a paragraph out of it. Wish for ONE thing only. Preferably, make it a positive sentence. So instead of saying i wish i don’t have to go to a boarding schoolΒ to study, wish, i wish i can stay right here in Bombay to study.

Always add or better to your wish, so if Guruji wishes to give you much more or better that what you want, He has the option to do so πŸ™‚

So instead of wishing, i wish i get a million dollars, say, i wish i get aΒ millionΒ dollars or better (He may want to give you 10 million)…

When in doubt, wish that whatever is best, let that happen.

The best wish you can ask for is shraddha… there is no good english word for it, but it can be translated as faith. When you have the faith, then everything else will come to you…

Jai Gurudeva!

    Jai Gurudeva

  2. sonali says:

    but most of the times in my case its zarurat se zyaada samai se pehele!!

  3. Shwetal says:

    I really needed this one…
    As usual, HE knows what I need and when… and then… Bingo! HE gives it!!!

  4. Raj says:

    I once heard Guruji say that the best wish one can ask for is contentment. So, yes, maybe Shradda and Trupthi (or even better). Though, have to make sure that we ask it in english….knowing that the divine loves fun…just in case He mistakes it for names….things might get out of hand at home πŸ˜‰

  5. Priyanka says:

    thanku so much…i really needed this πŸ™‚

  6. Sandeep says:

    Absolutely Bau… and as guruji says Faith is knowing that you will always get what you need. Jgd

  7. Gaurav says:

    “The best wish you can ask for is shraddha… there is no good english word for it, but it can be translated as faith. When you have the faith, then everything else will come to you”

    How true and what a coincidence. I have the habit of writing my wishes as SMS to Guruji and save in draft. Just 2 days back I wrote to Him to give me faith and I don’t want anything more πŸ™‚

  11. nidhi says:

    bawa i wanted to know that when can you ask for a wish?
    is it anytime or only when you are told to ?

  12. prateek says:

    awesome… πŸ™‚

  13. Monica Tiwari says:

    I love Guruji…
    Don’t know when I wished for Him but He just came :’) :’)

  14. Vinod says:

    I really really wish I have more Shradha

  15. Pothi says:

    How true it is.

    Jai guru dev.

  16. Anusha says:

    Wonderful post Bawa… Just what I needed.. πŸ™‚

    I have been clueless a lot of times! No missed opportunities anymore.. πŸ™‚


  17. AOLmember says:

    Can I make a smart wish like ‘I wish I am enlightened’ or ‘I wish I am always happy and peaceful’ because if these wished are granted what more do I need in life?!! Dont u think all smaller wishes and wants are meant for the above wishes?
    Will Guruji grant such wishes or will he ignore them as being too ‘complicated’ ?

    • Bawa says:

      You can make those wishes … for the first one, do you really want it? if you really do, then it will be yours
      for the second, just drop the always and you are already there

      • Sameer Sathe says:


        “for the first one, do you really want it? ” …What does this mean? How one can decide the ‘The person wants to get enlightned or not? Actually I confused on your response…
        e.g. I have seen/experienced car so I can make a wish for that? But I have not experienced the ‘Enlightenment’ then how that will come from inside that I want it? Bcoz I have no idea what it is?

  18. Harsh Agarwal says:

    greatly appreciated bau…:)

  19. Prashant says:

    thank you!

    jai gurudeva! πŸ™‚

  20. satwik says:

    im jus going to do my sadhana and make my long pending wish

    jai gurudev

  21. Swati D says:

    Hey bhawu,
    Many times I have this question in mind how to wish πŸ™‚
    This guide going to be very helpful :). Thank you for the post.

    Jay Gurudev!!
    love you bhawa and dinesh bhaiya

  22. Gaurav says:

    A couple of quick questions on this one Bau:

    1. Do wishes need to recurring? That means, up till the wish gets fulfilled do I need to keep repeating the process.
    2. Does barter work with God? I have heard a lot of people (in AOL too) get into transaction mode. For example, if I quit smoking, God (in my case Guruji) will give me X, Y, Z. Or If I do X amount of seva, then this would happen. Does this work?

    • Bawa says:

      1. nope… a strong intention and then just let go
      2. many people like to think that it works πŸ™‚ … fear and greed help for a bit, but its finally love that clinches the deal

  23. Minnie says:

    oh.. its sooo soo soo beautiful πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  24. Monika says:

    Dear Sir,

    Wonderful post !!! made my wish thanks a ton for such a wonderful post

  26. ekta says:

    Simply awesomeeee πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  27. Gaurav says:

    jgd bau..
    bau but y to make a wish?(ofcourse i need a lot 4m him) there is a certain section of “spiritual” ppl who say a Guru knows what to give you and when to give you…so is it fine to ask for something from him?or if we don’t ask,is there a possibility that he will not grant,as we may not have asked?or what if we ask and it doesn’t get fulfilled?does it mean that we are not sincere?or lack of seva/karma?or not good for us or not given 100%?

    • Bawa says:

      Defintely He does, and He/the Universe will give you what you require when you require … but the mind is the way the mind is, so to quiten it, we can make some wishes…

      • Uddip says:

        I am going to use these words again and again! For me and others too whenever it’s time to make a wish! πŸ™‚

  28. hamsa says:

    Jgd, tu ..

    long ago i heard .. Sarvejana sukhino bhavantu is a good prayer to God – as it includes everyone even oneself .. love

  29. Shikhar Mehta says:

    hhmm lovely…

  30. poonam shah says:

    simply liked wht u wrote at the end – wish for shraddha!!!


  31. hari says:

    “The best wish you can ask for is shraddha… … … … When you have the faith, then everything else will come to you…”

    Bawa, Thanks a lot for this. This has triggered something even though i might have heard this lot of times before. Irrespective of everything else coming or not… just having faith in itself will make me peaceful and remove lot of my restlessness. KEEP THE FAITH.

  32. Oma Ram says:

    Jgd bau. All confusions sweeped away by the knowledge. Thanx. love . . Om

  33. rahul says:

    JGD Bawa,

    You have been with Gurudev for the past so many years now and you have been showered with the Abundance of his grace.. I often feel Guruji’s presence in my heart and I cannot be sure whether He is actually with me or whether it is my own self/imagination conjuring up ideas
    .. How does a Sadhak get a concrete realisation or experience that the Master is with him and is guiding him/her every step of the way.. The Guru/Shishya relationship is very personal and everyone likes to believe that the Master is there only for them.But does the Master,on the other hand differentiate one seeker from the other?.. Please shed light on this..

  34. Abhilasha says:

    Thanks Bau..this is beautiful knowledge..

  35. Manasi. says:

    thanx bau…i needed this….will surely take heed next tym i wish…guruji rocks…luv him….. i guess my only wish at this moment is tht i should stop being self centered….i hav realised tht i am toooo selfish 4 my own liking……

  36. Kuldeep Amrelia says:

    when is the next QnA ??

  37. Prasad says:

    I love Guruji…
    I really needed..
    Jai Gurudev…….

  38. srikanth says:

    The one and only wish I have. I wish I am like guruji in all aspects of life.

  44. Aditi says:

    Does the wish come true always ?

    • Bawa says:

      the better part πŸ™‚

      • Aditi says:

        Thanks for replying.. reply from you made me feel better.. I also had this experience dat god gives us what v need and truly ask for.. but there was a decision i asked him to take it for me .. the result came but i am unable to take it.. i realized it late that i love the person so much..i really love him and don’t think i will be able to make any one happy but him…

  46. Mady says:

    What if i love someone a lot & i need her .Should i wish that i need her in my life or if not then someone better lol ? Coz i love her alot no one can be better thn her .
    So can someone give me a explaination to asking for smthing better ?
    No Offence.

    Jai guru dev

    • Bawa says:

      hmmm … quite a quandary …
      You dont really know if she is best for you … so, wish for her or anyone else that Guruji feels is bes for you πŸ™‚

      • Uddip says:

        That made things really simple! πŸ™‚

      • Aditi says:

        first u need to ask whether u really love her, cause if its the case u would not tkink that any one else is better for you than her..

        • Mady says:

          @ Aditi -Yeaa Ofcourse i do love her a lot .But the connection between us is very critical at the moment .It’s kinda everything have turned into mess .Whereas it wasn’t my mistake at all .Well i never blame her though but at this situation i can just do one thing that is “Make a WISH”
          As i can’t afford to loose her .

  47. easha says:

    thank u soo much bawa,u really are a savior”
    i just wished n went to sleep,n now im just waitin πŸ™‚

  48. Viraj says:

    Dearest Bau,
    Thank you so much. Couldnt have asked for anything more :-))
    I wish I can be close to what you and Dinesh Bhaiya have become πŸ™‚

  49. Viraj says:

    ..or better πŸ™‚

  50. Anisha says:

    Thank you Bau! The ‘or better’ would make a world of difference with the intention of wishes!!
    Bau, sometimes there is some fallout as well with wishes being granted, shd we address this as well, or let things take its course? In such a case one might also wonder if we’d meddled with the intended flow somehow…

    • Bawa says:

      With the Guru with you, and your Sadhana Seva and Satsang, only good will come, dont worry about meddling πŸ™‚

  51. shardul says:

    This is the first post I read on this website.
    And then continued further.
    And as was reading backwards, felt sorry, that the reading will end sometime.
    So now I’m reading it again, in forward timeline, this time. πŸ™‚

    It is also pleasant (and surprising for a ‘seasoned’ blog reader)
    to see different posts coming up under different tag-labels… πŸ˜€

    by the way,
    I wish i could, sometimes, use the smiley I see used so frequently over here.
    Can I ?
