Q: In our childhood we heard that there is someone named ‘Chitragupta’ who is talking note of all our actions and is responsible for counting our karma balances. Is that true? Is there really someone who is watching us every moment?
Guruji: ‘Chitra’ means photo, picture and ‘Gupta’ means secret, hidden. The self who is witnessing the actions, the conscious mind is referred here to as Chitragupta. You know there is this saying which says, ‘Under the foot-print of an elephant, all other marks dissolve’. Therefore under the Guru when are doing your Sadhana and Seva and Satsang then everything else dissolves. Similarly Chitragupta is not the (Malik) God, he is the (Sevak) servant. But I tell you without self knowledge
everything is false!!
