A Troubled Father

A question comes in from a concerned Asian family whose father comes home late, having drunk too much and tending to anger. Gurudeva advises not to disturb him by giving him more advice, but that all members of the family should observe ahimsa and create an atmosphere of peace in the home and try to make him feel always welcome. Slowly, slowly, he will change, Gurudeva says.

When we restrain our tendencies to deceive, to lie and break promises, our external life is uncomplicated, as is our subconscious mind. Honesty is the foundation of truth. It is ecologically, psychologically purifying.
