Be True to Your Initiation; Look Out for Harry Potter!

Two pertinent questions are answered today. First Gurudeva dispels a misconception about initiation, that, some think, the initiation is the end of striving. Second, Gurudeva answers a question from a concerned parent who wonders if they should have a say in whether or not their children can read the popular Harry Potter books. Excuse me, Harry, but Gurudeva has something to say to you!
