The Flower Penance


A handsome young man sent Gurudeva a question along with a few digital photos of himself. He asks Gurudeva how to deal with the "big bad world out here" and the people who seem to do nothing but hurt others. Gurudeva prescribes the flower penance as a means to put the past behind, and he advises the young man to choose his company carefully.

This is one of the great benefits awarded a yoga student working in the guru system: his opportunity to identify with the intuitive mind of the guru.
