Meaning of Temple Sacraments

An e-devotee from New York asks about the significance of the sacred substances found in the temple and on the foreheads of Hindus. Gurudeva gives and inspiring answer, saying that the substances are offered to the Gods with honor, then they are offered to the devotees, honoring their own divinity.
