The Company We Keep

A Hindu Saivite Brahmin in London tells Gurudeva about his roomate--a jolly good chap, overall, except for when he explains how Hindus will go to hell unless they accept Jesus. Hmmn. Gurudeva, what should he do? As we would guess, Gurudeva recommends he surround himself with like minded Hindus, or at least devout Hindus, so that he can delve ever deeper into his own spiritual path.

Most people try to experience God through other people. Disciples see a guru as God. Wives see their husband as God. Devotees see the Deity in the temple as God. But all the time, behind the eyes of their seeing, is God.
