Ganesha in the home; Five states of mind; Honoring ancestors

A cyber devotee asks if you have a Ganesha statue in the home which direction should he be facing. Gurudeva said that the Gods should always face you and you face the Gods and Lord Ganesha can be in every room in the house. A cyber space devotee in Singapore wonders what happens to the five states of mind after death. Gurudeva says the five states of mind are always functioning. A cybercadet from Europe asks how do we honor ancestors of a different religion? Gurudeva says it does not matter what religion they are because we are honoring their soul.

Namah Sivaya has such power, the mere intonation of these syllables reaps its own reward in salvaging the soul from bondages of the treacherous instinctive mind and the steel bands of a perfected externalized intellect.
