Not Bound by Birth

Does our physical and social place of birth indicate the spiritual path that we were "destined" to follow? Gurudeva addresses this question today for an e-devotee in Delaware. His advice, in short, is to stand on your own two feet and embrace the religion that gives solace to your soul. Birth may be a barrier only, and not an insurmountable one.

To know yourself is why you are on Earth. You were born to realize the Self. You are not here to make money, to clothe yourself or to entertain yourself. These are incidentals.
