Yoga is the Last Step


E-devotee Frank from Austin Texas has been practicing meditation for 28 years and asks Gurudeva how to deepen his experience. Gurudeva stresses the need for a firm foundation of commitment and culture, and he reminds that the practice of yoga is the last step, not the first.

Go on a pilgrimage once a year, read scriptures daily, perform puja daily, go to the temple at least once a week, if not more often--fulfill these disciplines, known as the pancha nitya karmas. This is the basic Saiva Siddhanta sadhana.
