Crystal Sivalingam, Lottery - good money or bad money

Gurudeva talks about the 700 pound crystal Sivalingam that will be enshrined in the San Marga Iraivan Temple. A cyberspace devotee from Texas asks if running a lottery is gambling and is the money produced from that good money or bad money. Gurudeva says that it is gambling and it involves taking money away from one group of people to benefit another causing unhappiness on one side and happiness on the other.

Patience is having the power of acceptance, accepting people, accepting events as they are happening. One of the great spiritual powers that people can have is to accept things as they are.
