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.

We neither fear death nor look forward to it, but revere it as a most exalted experience. Life, death and the afterlife are all part of our path to perfect oneness with God.
