Avoiding the Occult

A devotee attending Gurudeva's talk in Kadavul temple on Kauai asks why Gurudeva advises not to become involved in past life remembering and other occult practices. These, Gurudeva explains, are a sidetrack on the path to Self Realization. Only for the fully realized Satgurus and Swamis do these powers and abilities become simply "tools of the trade."
