Prayer, Meditation and Ritual


Today we have a delightful question and answer session about the difference between prayer and meditation and the need for ritual. Gurudeva says that meditation is finding, or being your real self; prayer is asking for a change in your karmas--and he elaborates. In the middle Gurudeva realizes he forgot to give a break for our Tamil translator. It's a humorous moment in the midst of a deep discussion. Enjoy.

If you are having a difficult day, tell yourself, "I'm working with my subconscious mind. Admittedly, things are not working out very well for me today, but I think I will have it all adjusted by evening."
