End of the World; How to be a Saiva Swami?

Nine year old cyberspace cadet Yatrika from Sunnyvale, California wants to know where does everybody go when Siva absorbs the entire universe during the time of Mahapralaya. Gurudeva reassures her that this will not happen soon and explains about Mahapralaya. Another cyber devotee asks how does one become a Saiva Swami. Gurudeva says to become a swami one has to settle all affairs within the world and within himself so that the world renounces him.

In the home, the mother is likened to the Shakti Deity. She is the power, the very soul of the home. None other. So, she has to be there. She has to be treated sensitively and kindly, and with respect.
