Predestination


A cyberspace question from Tamil Nadu, India from someone wondering why we should go to the temple if everything is predestined. Gurudeva explains that we create our own destiny, according to the law called Karma. But, he says, we don't want to acknowledge fate. By going to the temple we can mitigate the karmas we create.

We're here to realize the Self, have that one dramatic experience where everything that we thought was things is turned upside down, and our whole perspective afterwards changes. That is the purpose for living on this Earth.
