The Big Bad-Money Lottery; Beware the Backbiters

Gurudeva gives two inspired responses to questions on real-life issues in Singapore and Malaysia. First, Sivakumaren asks if the money won in a Lottery would be good or bad money. Then a Malaysian cyber-cadet asks Gurudeva to comment on the prevalent practice of backbiting. Gurudeva does have something to say, and he's out front about it!

Giving a gift begrudgingly in return for another gift is, of course, mere barter. Many families barter their way through life in this way, thinking they are giving. But such gifts are cold, the fulfillment is empty, and the law of karma pays discounted returns.
