Talk by Swami Bua


During this year's Guru Purnima celebrations Gurudeva invited Swami Bua to talk for the internet. Swami Bua was a guest of honor for the festival. Here, Swamiji actually defers to speak later in the evening, saying that "When you have heard the lion roaring, how can this baby lion bleat?" However, you will see that Swamiji still has some words of blessing for Gurudeva and Iraivan temple, and he definitely has a sense of humor.

Once a profound relationship is developed with Lord Muruga, then with the guru's permission and guidance, true yoga may commence. Otherwise, no matter how long one sits in meditation, no matter how hard one tries, it is just sitting, it is just trying.
