A Troubled Father

A question comes in from a concerned Asian family whose father comes home late, having drunk too much and tending to anger. Gurudeva advises not to disturb him by giving him more advice, but that all members of the family should observe ahimsa and create an atmosphere of peace in the home and try to make him feel always welcome. Slowly, slowly, he will change, Gurudeva says.

Sadhana is performing the same discipline over and over and over again. Just as we methodically exercise the physical body to build up its muscles, we perform spiritual disciplines over and over again to strengthen our spiritual, inner bodies.
