What Happened on Gurudeva's Retreat


Today Gurudeva explains what he's done during the three years that he has been on retreat at Kauai Aadheenam and not traveling. It includes turning Hinduism Today into a color magazine, completing the children's course books one and two, Loving Ganesha, 5th edition of Dancing with Siva, Merging with Siva and Weaver's Wisdom. Now he is open to travel to significant events. He answers a question about feeling hot during meditation and how this is a result of unbalanced diet, among other causes.

Giving a gift begrudgingly in return for another gift is, of course, mere barter. Many families barter their way through life in this way, thinking they are giving. But such gifts are cold, the fulfillment is empty, and the law of karma pays discounted returns.
