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.

There is a way of being remorseful, showing shame, being humble, of resolving situations when they do go wrong so that you can truly "get on with life" and not be bound by emotionally saturated memories of the past.
