Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami expands on material from our new publication “Path to Siva.” Here Satguru discusses lesson 25, covering our Saivite Hindu view of Evil, Hell and Sin.
Hindus believe in each individual as a soul, a divine being who is inherently good. We all have a threefold nature: instinctive, intellectual, intuitive. Develop the intuitive/spiritual/soul nature with compassion, devotion, penance. Use the intellect to help subdue the instinctive mind. Guilt is not a part of Hinduism. There is no eternal hell. You have a continuity of consciousness when you transition to the inner worlds. There is no devil, but there are mischievous “asuras.”
Path to Siva, Lesson 25.
