Past Lives, Why Siva created the universe?

A cybercadet asks why don't we remember our past lives. Gurudeva says that the memory of past lives is available to us and that it is possible to trace back to past lives. Another question comes from a cyberspace devotee in Wales who wonders why Siva created the universe.

Through temple worship, the three worlds become open to one another, and the beings within them are able to communicate. By means of the mystical arts of puja, the worlds act in concert, and prayers are received.
