The Company We Keep


A Hindu Saivite Brahmin in London tells Gurudeva about his roomate--a jolly good chap, overall, except for when he explains how Hindus will go to hell unless they accept Jesus. Hmmn. Gurudeva, what should he do? As we would guess, Gurudeva recommends he surround himself with like minded Hindus, or at least devout Hindus, so that he can delve ever deeper into his own spiritual path.

Performing daily sadhana, keeping good company, pilgrimaging to holy places, seeing to others' needs--these evoke the higher energies, direct the mind to useful thoughts and avoid the creation of troublesome new karmas.
