Sacraments, Scripture, Death


Gurudeva continues his discussion of sacraments, which are a ceremony in honor of you, he says, in all religions. They impress the subconscious mind in a powerful way. Everyone looks forward to a birthday party, he explains, and similarly, the many sacraments of Hinduism, throughout life at all stages, for children and adults, should not be missed, for that would be a let-down. Gurudeva discusses the sacrament of the great transition called death.

It is an error to say that the universe is mere illusion, for it is entirely real when experienced in ordinary consciousness, and its existence is required to lead us to God.
