A cybercadet from Australia wonders what he can do about his 15 year old son that uses drugs for spiritual awakening. Gurudeva warns that there is a consequence to every short cut and that one simple drug leads to another and a another before resulting in brain damage. Gurudeva says that in Sanatana Dharma sadhana, the ardous path of tapas, is the sustaining path for spirituality.
