A Troubled Father


A question comes in from a concerned Asian family whose father comes home late, having drunk too much and tending to anger. Gurudeva advises not to disturb him by giving him more advice, but that all members of the family should observe ahimsa and create an atmosphere of peace in the home and try to make him feel always welcome. Slowly, slowly, he will change, Gurudeva says.

In the home, the mother is likened to the Shakti Deity. She is the power, the very soul of the home. None other. So, she has to be there. She has to be treated sensitively and kindly, and with respect.
