Noninjury and Brahmacharya

Cybertalk: Bodhinatha speaks on vasudhaiva kutumbakam, "The whole world is one family," in reference to the current problem in India. He discusses the problem of the "my people" concept, that of exclusion, and the division it creates in the world. Next is ahimsa, noninjury, as it relates to speech, and the problem with joking, teasing, gossiping and backbiting. Bodhinatha reiterates a caution Gurudeva gives to those practicing brahmacharya, total sexual abstinence, with regard to the power of their words and thoughts.

The worship of Siva will give you wealth. The worship of Siva will give you health. The worship of Siva will give you knowledge. The worship of Siva will fill your heart with love and compassion.
