Prayer, Meditation and Ritual

Today we have a delightful question and answer session about the difference between prayer and meditation and the need for ritual. Gurudeva says that meditation is finding, or being your real self; prayer is asking for a change in your karmas--and he elaborates. In the middle Gurudeva realizes he forgot to give a break for our Tamil translator. It's a humorous moment in the midst of a deep discussion. Enjoy.

This inner light is so beautiful. All day long my head has been filled with light. It feels that if I were to reach up and put both hands around the top of my head, there wouldn't be a head there.
