Gossiping, Easiest way to enlightenment

A cybercadet from Texas asks about backbitting and gossip and wonders what to do when at family events that is all that takes place. Gurudeva gives his permission to her to make as many copies of the article on backbitting which appeared in Hinduism Today and to pass it around to all her relatives and friends. Another question is put worth to Gurudeva and here a cyberdevotee asks what is the easiest way to enlightenment. Gurudeva says to close off the lower nature in order to be aware of the natural light of your soul which is already there.

There is no place where Siva is not. He is in you. He is in this temple. He is in the trees. He is in the sky, in the clouds, in the planets. He is the galaxies swirling in space and the space between galaxies, too. He is the universe.
