Not Bound by Birth


Does our physical and social place of birth indicate the spiritual path that we were "destined" to follow? Gurudeva addresses this question today for an e-devotee in Delaware. His advice, in short, is to stand on your own two feet and embrace the religion that gives solace to your soul. Birth may be a barrier only, and not an insurmountable one.

When the mind is disturbed, it is outwardly strong. The mind that is not disturbed is inwardly strong. Your inner strength is always more dependable than your outward display of strength.
