What about the Goddess?


A cyber-devotee has been perusing our extensive website and noticed what seemed to be an absence of the Goddess. Does Lord Siva still have Parvati? Another devotee asks about Gurudeva's opinion of Goddess Kali. We put both answers together today. You'll also hear some of the fun exchanges that occur between Gurudeva and Sadhaka Thondunatha (our Tamil translator) when Gurudeva uses slightly more obscure words.

Giving a gift begrudgingly in return for another gift is, of course, mere barter. Many families barter their way through life in this way, thinking they are giving. But such gifts are cold, the fulfillment is empty, and the law of karma pays discounted returns.
