Avoiding the Occult

A devotee attending Gurudeva's talk in Kadavul temple on Kauai asks why Gurudeva advises not to become involved in past life remembering and other occult practices. These, Gurudeva explains, are a sidetrack on the path to Self Realization. Only for the fully realized Satgurus and Swamis do these powers and abilities become simply "tools of the trade."

The internal difference that makes a soul a jnani is that he knows who he is and who you are. He knows Truth, and he knows the lie.
