Sivaratri 2000 Part 4


Gurudeva makes the distinction clear between those who complain about rules, and those who follow them happily. He also outlines the practices and principles of the Saivite Hindu family, and how Lord Siva teaches his devotee by revealing to them and concealing from them.

We make very little progress when we strive to conquer these baser instincts in a good mood. However, vast strides are possible when we are miserable and work with ourselves to replace our misery with joy and understanding.
—Gurudeva
