Culture Crisis?

An e-devotee in Ashburn, Virginia, USA, asks if Hindu culture will survive. Gurudeva is inspired to give a more lengthy answer, and he stresses how Hindu culture comes out of the worship and devotional sadhanas performed in the temples. Gurudeva adds that while there are many trying to bring the best of the West to the East, there are at the same time many bringing the best of the East to the West.

Most people try to experience God through other people. Disciples see a guru as God. Wives see their husband as God. Devotees see the Deity in the temple as God. But all the time, behind the eyes of their seeing, is God.
