Heaven and Hell; Keeping Good Company

A cyberspace devotee from Trinidad asks if there is a heaven and a hell. Gurudeva explains that heaven and hell can be translated into the higher nature and the lower nature. Another cyber devotee from Malaysia wonders why people don't practice what they preach. Gurudeva suggests that a path be chosen and that one associates with those on the same path to do well in life.

Every Saivite home centers around the home shrine, a special room set aside and maintained to create a temple-like atmosphere in which we conduct puja, read scripture, perform sadhana, meditate, sing bhajana and do japa.
