Gossiping, Easiest way to enlightenment


A cybercadet from Texas asks about backbitting and gossip and wonders what to do when at family events that is all that takes place. Gurudeva gives his permission to her to make as many copies of the article on backbitting which appeared in Hinduism Today and to pass it around to all her relatives and friends. Another question is put worth to Gurudeva and here a cyberdevotee asks what is the easiest way to enlightenment. Gurudeva says to close off the lower nature in order to be aware of the natural light of your soul which is already there.

There is a way of being remorseful, showing shame, being humble, of resolving situations when they do go wrong so that you can truly "get on with life" and not be bound by emotionally saturated memories of the past.
