Retreat after death

A cyber devotee asks if it is alright to meditate in the shrine room during the 31 day retreat after a death in the family. Gurudeva says that meditation is fine during ths period but one should not go to the temple, perform arati in the shrine room and visit holy men and women. Gurudeva also says that traditional Hindus would meditate in another room and not the shrine room.

This inner light is so beautiful. All day long my head has been filled with light. It feels that if I were to reach up and put both hands around the top of my head, there wouldn't be a head there.
