East and West

Sometimes our questions to Gurudeva stimulate a response that is not what we expected. That may be the case with today's question from cyberspace, which asks, "Why were all the major religions born in the middle east?" Gurudeva answers that there were many other "major" religions in the world, once upon a time.

Every Saivite home centers around the home shrine, a special room set aside and maintained to create a temple-like atmosphere in which we conduct puja, read scripture, perform sadhana, meditate, sing bhajana and do japa.
