The Gods Do Not Punish

An e-devotee asks Gurudeva for clarification of the statements in Merging with Siva about the Gods working with karma differently for younger souls and older souls. Gurudeva explains that the Gods work with the laws of karma to help mitigate karma or not. They give blessings and boons and They withdraw blessings and boons, but They do not punish. Those who have a conscience punish themselves. Aum Namasivaya!

The first faculty of the expression of the inner being of your immortal soul is the great power of observation, to learn through observation, as your individual awareness detaches itself from that which it is aware of.
