Objections to Marriage


We pray that we are not too late in putting up this response. A woman in Selangor, Malaysia, asks Gurudeva what to do regarding her desires to marry a certain man. His family is now objecting, and their situation has driven them both to tears. Gurudeva's answer is clear cut. He says that since both are now adults, the parents have missed their opportunity to arrange a marriage. It is too late now for them to object. Gurudeva says, "Go ahead with your plans and live a happy life."

Become a spiritual being. That is your goal, your liberation, for as the years go by you can live in heaven, or you can live in your own self-created hell, and you don't want to do that. Think about it and create a heaven right now by living with Siva.
