Seeing Yourself in Others


If we see someone doing something that we really dislike, which really disturbs us, is that something that we might ourselves do under the same conditions? This is the question put to Gurudeva today. Gurudeva answers basically, "Yes," and he explains briefly.

Karma is the law of cause and effect, action and reaction governing maya. Anava is the individuating veil of duality, source of ignorance and finitude. Maya is the classroom, karma the teacher, and anava the student's ignorance.
