I am veda vernekar, studying in 4th year of engineering. I'll complete my engineering in next few months, and I am not placed in any company yet. All my friends r placed in one or the other company. I try hard to clear the first round but every time I fail. For the last 7 months i studied to the placement n could not clear the first round. I really feel bad n depressed about the placement. Now so much of working on placements have really lost my hope. please can you help me. I meditate every evening as my mom says. My mom has been a brahma kumari student past 8 years. I could not talk to her about this, as i dint wanted her to be sad for me. please help me. Waiting for your reply

Veda (and Everyone reading this)
Your letter says that you wish to overcome the state of depression. Firstly you need to understand that you are the creator of depression, hence for you it is possible to finish or overcome it.
Life offers good and bad experiences (we call is bad and good), from which we should LEARN. The aim is only to LEARN from what happens. It is really the aim. So living a free life - such mindset is needed. Remain free from what happens AND focus on how much you are learning. Then you will feel GOOD always because always you are learning something new.. understood?
Now, we offer you these Awakening episodes to lift up your mind above the state of depression. After this, you must continue your efforts in what you want. But always accept whatever happens. Be happy and LEARN.

Meditation is not only a sitting or to focus on thoughts. No. Meditation on God (RajaYog) is a connection and having a direct personal relationship with God, the Supreme Soul. We can experience him as our Father, Mother, Teacher, Friend, Brother and a Guide (guru).
