Predestination


A cyberspace question from Tamil Nadu, India from someone wondering why we should go to the temple if everything is predestined. Gurudeva explains that we create our own destiny, according to the law called Karma. But, he says, we don't want to acknowledge fate. By going to the temple we can mitigate the karmas we create.

The Self, or Parasiva, is an experience only after it has been experienced. Yet, it is not an experience at all, but the only possible nonexperience, which registers in its aftermath upon the mind of man.
