Responding to Abuse


Christina, from California, asks Gurudeva what to do if we encounter abusive situations. Is it our karma to know about it, or are we making karma by not doing something? Gurudeva answers unequivocally, "Do Something!" Otherwise, he explains, you do become involved in the karma of the situation.

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.
