Not Bound by Birth

Does our physical and social place of birth indicate the spiritual path that we were "destined" to follow? Gurudeva addresses this question today for an e-devotee in Delaware. His advice, in short, is to stand on your own two feet and embrace the religion that gives solace to your soul. Birth may be a barrier only, and not an insurmountable one.

The Self, Parasiva, can be realized only when the devotee turns away from the world and enters the cave within as a way of life through initiation and under vows.
