Retreat after death


A cyber devotee asks if it is alright to meditate in the shrine room during the 31 day retreat after a death in the family. Gurudeva says that meditation is fine during ths period but one should not go to the temple, perform arati in the shrine room and visit holy men and women. Gurudeva also says that traditional Hindus would meditate in another room and not the shrine room.

Finally, you go beyond light. Finally, you go into the core of existence itself, the Self God, beyond the stillness of the inner areas of mind. That is the mission and that is what humanity is seeking--total Self-God Realization.
