Responding to Abuse

Christina, from California, asks Gurudeva what to do if we encounter abusive situations. Is it our karma to know about it, or are we making karma by not doing something? Gurudeva answers unequivocally, "Do Something!" Otherwise, he explains, you do become involved in the karma of the situation.

Bribery corrupts the giver, the taker and the nation. To participate in bribery is to go into a deceptive, illegal partnership between the briber and the bribed.
