And young Puventhiran took his Arul Sishya vrata vows, being one of the first of our young teenagers who have reached the age of 18, who, having been children of members, now step up on their own volition, to become sishya of the parampara on their own two feet, so to speak, instead of just being under their parents wings.

There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down.
