12. Why does Sri Sathya Ashram open only on full moon day, new moon day, Tuesdays, and Fridays?
Just like Thai Poosam festival in Palani and Makara Jyothi in Sabari Malai, in Yelagiri Malai Sri Sathya Ashram full moon day, new moon day, Tuesdays, and Fridays are the destined special days.
13. How is karma eliminated the moment someone steps into the Ashram?
Karma is one’s action + consequence = karma. Karma arises from human deeds.
Through mentally and physically influencing others, a man’s action becomes unstoppable and runs continuously – this is called a man’s deed.
Like this, the deeds done by past 7 generation of one’s mother’s side and past 7 generations of father’s side, the good and bad consequence from all their deeds through the generations collectively becomes one’s Karma, which is created, shared and experienced.
In this way, 7 + 7 = 14 Karma acquired from one’s ancestors and in addition to that one’s own karma is encountered and experienced in life as happiness and sorrow.
So, only the sorrowful Karmas owned by a person gets dissipated and eliminated by setting foot into Sri Sathya Ashram.
14. Why is Bhagwan behind a screen during Sathya Darshan?
As Bhagwan is in Sathya Dharma Sankalpa vow.
15. What is Sathya Dharma Sankalpa Vow?
To be detached from worldly fame, honour, and self-marketing. This vow has been taken to transform and reform the people all over the world, to emancipate and liberate all the humans, and to free the seeking devotees from their curses.
16. Can I have a personal darshan with Shree Sathya Bhagwan? What should I do for that?
We will not have the necessity to have a personal darshan with Bhagwan. It is because, as soon as we set foot into the Ashram, Bhagwan will start reading our minds.
Bhagwan will commence towards fulfilling those wishes. Our wishes and thoughts will begin to bear fruit.
After this, what is the need for us to meet Bhagwan individually?
Bhagwan belongs to this whole world. HE does not belong to any specific entity.
If someone wants to have a personal darshan with Bhagwan, they must have an invite or a divine command from Bhagwan himself.
Having such a darshan with the divine command is known as Karma Vimochana Darshan.
17. What should I do to attain Karma Vimochana Darshan?
1. If we take part in Sewas and if these Sewas satisfy and please Bhagwan completely, we shall attain Karma Vimochana Darshan.
2. If we become a disciple of Bhagwan, we shall achieve Karma Vimochana Darshan.
3. When we fulfill Divine Sewas for the Ashram, we shall attain Karma Vimochana Darshan.
4. If we are a destined athma, when we receive our spiritual awakening, we shall achieve Karma Vimochana Darshan.
18. What is Mahashakthi? Is Mahashakthi a new God?
Mahashakthi is neither a new God nor a new deity.

In this universe, all that you can see through your eyes, things that you cannot see through your eyes, and things that are further infinitesimal… all of this is within Mahaskathi.
You all have kept several names for the same God. Mahashakthi is the one true God for all the different names you have.
