Family Sleeping Together, Delirious States of Mind

A cyberspace cadet in California noticed an Indian family that has a large home but they all sleep in the same room. Gurudeva explains that this is a common custom done in many countries and it is called family bonding. Another question from a cyberspace cadet who heard the Veena playing during the time of an intense fever. Gurudeva explains that a high fever often puts one in an altered state of consciousness where the superconscious sounds of the inner worlds are heard.

It is wise to have a free mind, a clear, serene and relaxed attitude toward life before partaking of food. That is why people on the inner path traditionally meditate for a moment, chant a mantra or say a prayer before a meal.
