Who's Poorer? (House, Home, Hotel)


A cyber-devotee writes to Gurudeva about his concerns over the poor. It troubles him to see them on the streets and read of their struggles. But Gurudeva has yet another different perspective to offer on the homeless. He asks us to ponder deeply what it is that really makes a home and a family. A big expensive house is often not a home at all.

When guests come, they must be given hospitality, at least a mat to sit on and a glass of water to drink. These are obligatory gifts. You must never leave your guest standing, and you must never leave your guest thirsty.
