Culture Crisis?


An e-devotee in Ashburn, Virginia, USA, asks if Hindu culture will survive. Gurudeva is inspired to give a more lengthy answer, and he stresses how Hindu culture comes out of the worship and devotional sadhanas performed in the temples. Gurudeva adds that while there are many trying to bring the best of the West to the East, there are at the same time many bringing the best of the East to the West.

When guests come, they must be given hospitality, at least a mat to sit on and a glass of water to drink. These are obligatory gifts. You must never leave your guest standing, and you must never leave your guest thirsty.
