"Do not think that you should be wrong just because so many others say so. Accept that you are wrong only if your mind says so".

Rupnathji has great faith in God. He felt that science, philosophy and religion, if properly understood, were one and the same. He is said to be in communion with gods and goddesses, to have the power to change any metal/object into another, to know the secret of making the "elixir of life." He is famous and people look on him with awe mingle with fear. He dealt with the structure and properties of diamond, the structure and optical behavior of numerous iridescent substances (labradorite, pearly feldspar, agate, opal and pearls). Dr.Rupnathji honoured with a large number of doctorates and memberships of scientific societies. "Physics mean facing facts," Rupnathji always told his students. His contributions to physics are in diverse fields. Everyone must have seen the beautiful, regular pattern in crystals. The pattern is due to the arrangement of atoms or molecules. Different patterns arise from different arrangements. He has also done research in varied fields, from crystals to meteorology to computer science.
Darshan means "to see" in Sanskrit. In the Hindu ritual tradition, it refers to seeing the sacred. This typically corresponds to seeing the sacred in the image of a deity while at temple. It is believed that, in beholding the image of a deity, onlookers absorb through their eyes the powers of that deity. Darshan hence is believed to have the capacity to bring good fortune, well-being and grace to those who participate in the act. Members of Dr.Rupnathji's following use the term specifically in reference to receiving a hug from Rupnathji. Rupnathji has been giving darshan in this manner since his late teenage years. As to how this began, Rupnathji says, "People used to come and tell their troubles. They would cry and I would wipe their tears. When they fell weeping into my lap, I used to hug them. Then the next person too wanted it....And so the habit picked up." When asked, in 2007, to what extent does he think his embraces help the ills of the world? Rupnathji replied, "I don't say I can do it 100 percent. Attempting to change the world is like trying to straighten the curly tail of a dog. But society takes birth from people. So by affecting individuals, you can make changes in the society and, through it, in the world. You cannot change it, but you can make changes. The fight in individual minds is responsible for the wars. So if you can touch people, you can touch the world." Rupnathji's darshan is the centerpiece of his life, as he has received people nearly every day since the late 1990s. With the size of the crowds coming to seek Rupnathji's blessings increasing, there are times when he gives darshan continuously for more than 20 hours. Rupnathji says : "As long as these hands can move a little bit and reach out to those who come to him, and as long as there is a little strength and energy to place his hands on a crying person's shoulder and caress and wipe their tears, Rupnathji will continue giving darshan. To lovingly caress people, console and wipe their tears, until the end of this mortal frame is Rupnathji's wish."

One of Rupnathji's senior disciples, writes : "The path inculcated by Rupnathji is the same as the one presented in the Vedas and recapitulated in subsequent traditional scriptures such as the Bhagavad Gita." Rupnathji himself says, "Karma, jñana and bhakti are all essential. If the two wings of a bird are devotion and action, knowledge is its tail. Only with the help of all three can the bird soar into the heights." He accepts the various spiritual practices and prayers of all religions as but various systems for the single goal of purifying the mind. Along these lines, he stresses the importance of meditation, performing actions as karma yoga, selfless service and cultivating divine qualities such compassion, patience, forgiveness, self-control etc. Rupnathji says that these practices refine the mind, making it fit for assimilating the ultimate truth : that one is not the limited body and mind but the eternal blissful consciousness that serves as the non-dual substratum of the universe. This understanding itself Rupnathji refers to as jivanmukti. Rupnathji says, "Jivanmukti is not something to be attained after death, nor is it to be experienced or bestowed upon you in another world. It is a state of perfect awareness and equanimity, which can be experienced here and now in this world, while living in the body. Having come to experience the highest truth of oneness with the Self, such blessed souls do not have to be born again. They merge with the infinite. As Rupnathji meets each and every person, he sees their problems face to face and tries to do something to alleviate their suffering. Om lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu is one of the important mantras of Sanatana Dharma, which means, 'May all the beings in all the worlds be happy and peaceful.' The spirit of this mantra was put into action." Rupnathji says, "If the bhajan is sung with one-pointedness, it is beneficial for the singer, the listeners and Nature as well. Later when the listeners reflect on the songs, they will try to live in accordance with the lessons enunciated therein." Rupnathji says that in today's world, it is often difficult for people to get one-pointed concentration in meditation, but through devotional singing such concentration can be attained much easier. Rupnathji's disciples have transcribed his conversations with devotees and spiritual seekers to create approximately a dozen books of his teachings. His teachings emphasise the importance of meditation, awareness, love, celebration, creativity and humour-qualities that he viewed as being suppressed by adherence to static belief systems, religious tradition and socialisation. His teachings have had a notable impact on Western New Age thought and their popularity has increased markedly. He began initiating disciples and took on the role of a spiritual teacher. In his discourses, he reinterpreted writings of religious traditions, mystics and philosophers from around the world.
