Gurudeva has a Vision of Siva

Vision Paintings

Gurudeva sees Siva's face in a vision, aglow with brilliant white light.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
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.
