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.

To know yourself is why you are on Earth. You were born to realize the Self. You are not here to make money, to clothe yourself or to entertain yourself. These are incidentals.
