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.

There is in much of the world the belief that life is a burden, a feeling of penitence, that it is good to suffer, good for the soul. In fact, spiritual life is not that way at all.
