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 the interplay between our experience and how we respond to it that makes karma devastating or helpfully invigorating.
