A Troubled Father


A question comes in from a concerned Asian family whose father comes home late, having drunk too much and tending to anger. Gurudeva advises not to disturb him by giving him more advice, but that all members of the family should observe ahimsa and create an atmosphere of peace in the home and try to make him feel always welcome. Slowly, slowly, he will change, Gurudeva says.

The Self, or Parasiva, is an experience only after it has been experienced. Yet, it is not an experience at all, but the only possible nonexperience, which registers in its aftermath upon the mind of man.
