Not Bound by Birth

Does our physical and social place of birth indicate the spiritual path that we were "destined" to follow? Gurudeva addresses this question today for an e-devotee in Delaware. His advice, in short, is to stand on your own two feet and embrace the religion that gives solace to your soul. Birth may be a barrier only, and not an insurmountable one.

Every form of life, every group of men, has its dharma, the law of its being. When we follow dharma, we are in conformity with the Truth that inheres and instructs the universe, and we naturally abide in closeness to God.
