An Aum Tatoo


An e-devotee who had an Aum tatoo put on now asks Gurudeva about the Aum and also wonders if the tatoo was such a good idea. Gurudeva explains some of the significance of Aum as well as the implications of wearing it on the body for all to see.

A satguru is needed because the mind is so cunning and the ego is a self-perpetuating mechanism. It is he who inspires, assists, guides and impels the shishya toward the Self of himself.
