BV: How did you shift from a businessman towards spiritualism?

Kapil: I never thought or planned of becoming a spiritual counsellor. It happened naturally. I always wanted to retire from all the business at the age of 40 and enjoy my life. And it actually happened.

With all the experiences I had, I thought that others should not fall into traps the way I did. I wanted to guide them through their personal and spiritual problems.

 

BV: What do you love about being a full-time Counsellor and Spiritual Mentor?

Kapil: When I help people, it gives me happiness. Even if I can change one person’s life, it would be a great thing for me.

 

BV: When did you start penning down your experiences for the first time?

Kapil: I never thought I will write a book about my spiritual journey as these were my personal experiences close to my heart. After the death of my true Master, Swami Ramanand Saraswati, I was in deep pain. It was then, few of my closest friends insisted that I should share my experiences with the world. I then started penning down my experiences. Even the name of the book is given by my friend.

BV: Difficulties that you faced while writing the book? How did you overcome them?

Kapil: The grief and sadness of missing my True Master during writing the book was tremendous. I had to relive every moment of my past which I had gone through, which was very painful.

 

In December 2013, when I completed writing the last chapter of this book, I suddenly fell ill. I was admitted to a hospital and the doctors declared that I won’t survive. On the third day in the ICU, my late Master visited me. I had asked for a wish from my late Master that when I would die, my Master would come to take me along. I knew that my time has come. However, my Master assured me that the time has not come and that I would get fine. From the next day itself, my condition started improving. I was discharged from the hospital in 10 days.

 

Although, I was bed-ridden for almost a year and a half, with my determination I finally published the book.

 

BV: Your definition of spirituality?

Kapil: For me, spirituality means coming to your true nature to show your divine self which is beyond physicality.

 

BV: What do you think is the reason behind a large number of people losing their path of life these days?

Kapil: The reason behind it is wrong desires. Moreover, nowadays people do not appreciate what they have. They focus more on material content and not on life.
