Prayer, Meditation and Ritual

Today we have a delightful question and answer session about the difference between prayer and meditation and the need for ritual. Gurudeva says that meditation is finding, or being your real self; prayer is asking for a change in your karmas--and he elaborates. In the middle Gurudeva realizes he forgot to give a break for our Tamil translator. It's a humorous moment in the midst of a deep discussion. Enjoy.

"I will be what I will to be. I will do what I will to do." You can repeat these two powerful affirmations over time and time again and thus rearrange, restructure, the forces of your subconscious mind and create a great inner peace within yourself.
