Temples in India, Anger in Worship


An e-devotee in Texas asks Gurudeva about the temples in South India that have been taken over by the government. The question triggers a forceful talk from Gurudeva on the effectiveness of temple priests, which can be either for higher or lower purposes, depending upon how the priests maintains himself and his religious disciplines.
