The Gods Do Not Punish


An e-devotee asks Gurudeva for clarification of the statements in Merging with Siva about the Gods working with karma differently for younger souls and older souls. Gurudeva explains that the Gods work with the laws of karma to help mitigate karma or not. They give blessings and boons and They withdraw blessings and boons, but They do not punish. Those who have a conscience punish themselves. Aum Namasivaya!

Once a profound relationship is developed with Lord Muruga, then with the guru's permission and guidance, true yoga may commence. Otherwise, no matter how long one sits in meditation, no matter how hard one tries, it is just sitting, it is just trying.
