When Kids Enter College


First, Gurudeva tells some news about the development of Muruga Hill here at Kauai Aadheenam. Then: E-devotee Lolita@yahoo.com is sending her children off to college soon and she asks Gurudeva for advice on how to keep them close. Along with other advice, Gurudeva suggests she explain clearly to them why they are going to college, to learn, not just to make friends.

Giving a gift begrudgingly in return for another gift is, of course, mere barter. Many families barter their way through life in this way, thinking they are giving. But such gifts are cold, the fulfillment is empty, and the law of karma pays discounted returns.
