Meaning of Temple Sacraments


An e-devotee from New York asks about the significance of the sacred substances found in the temple and on the foreheads of Hindus. Gurudeva gives and inspiring answer, saying that the substances are offered to the Gods with honor, then they are offered to the devotees, honoring their own divinity.

It is the wise man who recognizes the importance of controlling the forces of his mind. His life is a struggle to make his philosophy real, to gain control of the cycles of experience which have tied him to the wheel of karma.
—Gurudeva
