Family Sleeping Together, Delirious States of Mind


A cyberspace cadet in California noticed an Indian family that has a large home but they all sleep in the same room. Gurudeva explains that this is a common custom done in many countries and it is called family bonding. Another question from a cyberspace cadet who heard the Veena playing during the time of an intense fever. Gurudeva explains that a high fever often puts one in an altered state of consciousness where the superconscious sounds of the inner worlds are heard.

Every Saivite home centers around the home shrine, a special room set aside and maintained to create a temple-like atmosphere in which we conduct puja, read scripture, perform sadhana, meditate, sing bhajana and do japa.
