Unedited Transcript:

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!

Become a spiritual being. That is your goal, your liberation, for as the years go by you can live in heaven, or you can live in your own self-created hell, and you don't want to do that. Think about it and create a heaven right now by living with Siva.
