The Flower Penance

A handsome young man sent Gurudeva a question along with a few digital photos of himself. He asks Gurudeva how to deal with the "big bad world out here" and the people who seem to do nothing but hurt others. Gurudeva prescribes the flower penance as a means to put the past behind, and he advises the young man to choose his company carefully.

Sadhana is performing the same discipline over and over and over again. Just as we methodically exercise the physical body to build up its muscles, we perform spiritual disciplines over and over again to strengthen our spiritual, inner bodies.
