How Dare I Meditate?

We include the reading of the question again, to give a little audio look into the question and answer sessions with Gurudeva as they happen. Today Gurudeva responds to an e-devotee who is so concerned with the atrocities and troubles of the world that he sees on TV and reads about daily that he wonders if he should be sitting and meditating or getting up and trying to change things. Gurudeva answers by explaining the intrinsic nature of the world and the evolution that souls must experience in the world.

The force of the intellectual area of the mind is controlled and transmuted through the power of a regulated breath. A beginning pranayama is a method of breathing nine counts as we inhale, holding one; nine counts as we exhale, holding one count.
