Temples in India, Anger in Worship

An e-devotee in Texas asks Gurudeva about the temples in South India that have been taken over by the government. The question triggers a forceful talk from Gurudeva on the effectiveness of temple priests, which can be either for higher or lower purposes, depending upon how the priests maintains himself and his religious disciplines.

Our religion tells us that because we love God Siva, we love one another, for God Siva loves all of us. Our religion tells us that God Siva is like a father and a mother, not a vengeful God, but a God of love who helps us.
