End of the World; How to be a Saiva Swami?

Nine year old cyberspace cadet Yatrika from Sunnyvale, California wants to know where does everybody go when Siva absorbs the entire universe during the time of Mahapralaya. Gurudeva reassures her that this will not happen soon and explains about Mahapralaya. Another cyber devotee asks how does one become a Saiva Swami. Gurudeva says to become a swami one has to settle all affairs within the world and within himself so that the world renounces him.

Yes, bad things do happen. Still, the wise never blame God, for they know these to be the return of man's self-created karmas, difficult but necessary experiences for his spiritual evolution.
