Sivaratri 2000 Part 3


Gurudeva's Sivaratri upadesha explores spiritual solutions to the problems of humanity. Gurudeva stresses that Lord Siva's philosophy teaches that problems are meant to be solved, they are not meant to be lived with. Gurudeva also explains the powers that Lord Siva gives to His devotees, to take negative energy and make it positive and to influence by example.

Giving a gift begrudgingly in return for another gift is, of course, mere barter. Many families barter their way through life in this way, thinking they are giving. But such gifts are cold, the fulfillment is empty, and the law of karma pays discounted returns.
