Sacraments, Scripture, Death

Gurudeva continues his discussion of sacraments, which are a ceremony in honor of you, he says, in all religions. They impress the subconscious mind in a powerful way. Everyone looks forward to a birthday party, he explains, and similarly, the many sacraments of Hinduism, throughout life at all stages, for children and adults, should not be missed, for that would be a let-down. Gurudeva discusses the sacrament of the great transition called death.

The uninitiated might ask: "What is it like to be in the clear white light?" The young aspirant may reply, "It is as simple as sitting in a darkened room, closing the eyes in deep concentration and finding the entire inside of the cranium turning into light."
