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.

Be That which never changes. Then what happens? When we become this spiritual body and grasp that infinite intelligence of it, we're just in a state of pure consciousness and we come into the clear white light.
