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."

Of course, stealing must never, ever happen. Even a penny, a peso, a rupee, a lira or a yen should not be misappropriated or stolen. Defaulting on debts is also a form of stealing.
