Crystal Sivalingam, Lottery - good money or bad money


Gurudeva talks about the 700 pound crystal Sivalingam that will be enshrined in the San Marga Iraivan Temple. A cyberspace devotee from Texas asks if running a lottery is gambling and is the money produced from that good money or bad money. Gurudeva says that it is gambling and it involves taking money away from one group of people to benefit another causing unhappiness on one side and happiness on the other.

When through meditation, we view the universe from the inside out, we see that there is not one thing out of place or wrong. This releases the human concepts of right and wrong, good and bad.
