Q. what is inner voice?

A. Generally the temptations that are put forward by the mind are misunderstood as inner voice. However immoral or unethical they may be, people tend to justify their acts by saying they were guided by “the inner voice.”

Inner voice is the voice of Paramatma, The Super soul, who is seated within everyone’s heart and is directing all living entities. At the present moment, we are not in a position to identify His voice correctly. So, we need a spiritual master who is a bona fide representative of the Supreme Lord. Srila Prabhupada writes in his purport to Bhagavad-Gita (18.58): “No conditioned soul actually knows what is to be done and what is not to be done, but a person who acts in Krishna consciousness is free to act because everything is prompted by Krishna [Super soul] from within and confirmed by the spiritual master.”

So to understand the inner voice, we just need to surrender our lives to a bona fide spiritual master and listen to his instructions.
