East and West


Sometimes our questions to Gurudeva stimulate a response that is not what we expected. That may be the case with today's question from cyberspace, which asks, "Why were all the major religions born in the middle east?" Gurudeva answers that there were many other "major" religions in the world, once upon a time.

Because Self Realization must be experienced in a physical body, the soul cycles back again and again into flesh to dance with Siva, live with Siva and ultimately merge with Siva in undifferentiated oneness. Yea, jiva is actually Siva.
