Temples in India, Anger in Worship

An e-devotee in Texas asks Gurudeva about the temples in South India that have been taken over by the government. The question triggers a forceful talk from Gurudeva on the effectiveness of temple priests, which can be either for higher or lower purposes, depending upon how the priests maintains himself and his religious disciplines.

Saivites consider it most important to live near a Siva temple, and we build one wherever we find ourselves in the world. This is a most meritorious act, earning blessings in this life and the next.
