A question from a cyberspace devotee in Province, New York. "Do I have to become a pure vegetarian to be a Saivite? If so, can you provide recipes for the wife?"

Well, there are many reasons people become vegetarians in today's world. One of them is compassion for animals. They don't want to eat anything with eyes! Another is, for good health. Another is, for religious purposes. And, for this reason there are many, many vegetarian cookbooks - Indian style, European style, American style - available at almost any bookstore.

So, we hope the Prasad family has wonderful prasadam!

You have to realize It to know It; and after you realize It, you know It; and before you realize It, you want It; and after you realize It, you don't want It. You have lost something. You have lost your goal for Self Realization, because you've got it.
