A Troubled Father

A question comes in from a concerned Asian family whose father comes home late, having drunk too much and tending to anger. Gurudeva advises not to disturb him by giving him more advice, but that all members of the family should observe ahimsa and create an atmosphere of peace in the home and try to make him feel always welcome. Slowly, slowly, he will change, Gurudeva says.

A clean personal environment, wearing clean clothes, bathing often, keeping the room spotless where you meditate, breathing clean air, letting fresh air pass through your house, is all very important in the fulfillment of purity.
