Responding to Abuse


Christina, from California, asks Gurudeva what to do if we encounter abusive situations. Is it our karma to know about it, or are we making karma by not doing something? Gurudeva answers unequivocally, "Do Something!" Otherwise, he explains, you do become involved in the karma of the situation.

A beautiful practice is to try to sit quietly, visualizing within the lotus within the heart a light, a strong light emanating clearly, a light that is always there.
