Objections to Marriage

We pray that we are not too late in putting up this response. A woman in Selangor, Malaysia, asks Gurudeva what to do regarding her desires to marry a certain man. His family is now objecting, and their situation has driven them both to tears. Gurudeva's answer is clear cut. He says that since both are now adults, the parents have missed their opportunity to arrange a marriage. It is too late now for them to object. Gurudeva says, "Go ahead with your plans and live a happy life."

In the home, the mother is likened to the Shakti Deity. She is the power, the very soul of the home. None other. So, she has to be there. She has to be treated sensitively and kindly, and with respect.
