Predestination

A cyberspace question from Tamil Nadu, India from someone wondering why we should go to the temple if everything is predestined. Gurudeva explains that we create our own destiny, according to the law called Karma. But, he says, we don't want to acknowledge fate. By going to the temple we can mitigate the karmas we create.

Our religion tells us that because we love God Siva, we love one another, for God Siva loves all of us. Our religion tells us that God Siva is like a father and a mother, not a vengeful God, but a God of love who helps us.
