Sivaratri 2000 Part 4

Gurudeva makes the distinction clear between those who complain about rules, and those who follow them happily. He also outlines the practices and principles of the Saivite Hindu family, and how Lord Siva teaches his devotee by revealing to them and concealing from them.

When guests come, they must be given hospitality, at least a mat to sit on and a glass of water to drink. These are obligatory gifts. You must never leave your guest standing, and you must never leave your guest thirsty.
—Gurudeva
