Therapy or counseling

Question Detail: Is it necessary for us to go back into our childhood or past to figure out why we do the things we do today? In terms of how we may act out or how we act as a whole in relationships? Or how we act in general, in ways that cause us suffering or harm to ourselves and others? There are many who say this is necessary in order to come to terms with and see ourselves more clearly. Is therapy or counseling necessary?
Answer: For acute disorders or personality problems such therapy may be required. For the ordinary personality problems and faults that we all share, like anger, insecurity, jealousy, etc., it is not necessary. It is certainly helpful to become aware of our own faults and personality problems, acknowledge that we have them, and then work to control them. However, the origin of these problems is much deeper than any event from our early life, or even past life. The true origin is maya itself. 
All the faults and negativities of the mind are inherently present in maya. Thus, a mayic mind will automatically have all these faults. The only way to overcome mayic faults is to overcome maya, which happens upon God realization (which is only possible by surrendering to God through bhakti).
As we practice bhakti and purify our mind by attaching it to God, these mayic faults are gradually reduced and we gain more control over them. This is truly curing the disease at its root, instead of merely controlling its symptoms.

what do we do when we have made a serious spiritual transgression?

Answer: We should know that God and Guru do not look to punish someone who has committed a spiritual transgression or, namaparadh. The damage is done by our own mind. We pollute our own mind with our wrong thinking and then we suffer the consequences. But God and Guru know that as long as we are under the bondage of maya, we will continue to make such mistakes. They are more than willing to forgive us and to help us overcome the negative consequences of our mistake. All a sadhak has to do is admit his mistake, sincerely ask for forgiveness, and resolve never to make that mistake again. When you do that, your Guru will forgive you and will help you recover your lost devotion so that you can go ahead on the path.
