The Internal and External Ego


Today Gurudeva discusses the subtleties of the anava in its internal and external aspects. Gurudeva stresses that the first step of spiritual unfoldment is to harmonize these two so that they are one and the same. When this occurs one becomes a complete person, 24 hours a day, and nothing is hidden, even unto oneself. The best way to accomplish this, Gurudeva says, is through the Vasana Daha Tantra.

To the Saivite Hindu, all of life is sacred. All of life is religion. Thus, Saivite art is sacred art, Saivite music is devotional music, and the Saivite's business is not only his livelihood, it is his service to man and God.
