Achieving a New Identity


Is it possible to be successful in the world while maintaining your philosophical perspective? Gurudeva says, Yes, of course, that once you understand and accept yourself as a soul, rather than a body, mind or set of emotions, then you are able to work harmoniously with everyone without effort, and success comes automatically.

Once a profound relationship is developed with Lord Muruga, then with the guru's permission and guidance, true yoga may commence. Otherwise, no matter how long one sits in meditation, no matter how hard one tries, it is just sitting, it is just trying.
