Driving to Work, Chakras and Lotus Flowers

A cyberspace devotee from Iowa wonders what he can do for his spiritual life when driving to work each day. Gurudeva suggests that he listen to a selection of the Merging with Siva lessons which are available on CD. Another cyber devotee from Texas wonders what is the significance of the lotus flower. Gurudeva says that the chakras on the psychic level of the astral plane look very much like a lotus flower.

Go on a pilgrimage once a year, read scriptures daily, perform puja daily, go to the temple at least once a week, if not more often--fulfill these disciplines, known as the pancha nitya karmas. This is the basic Saiva Siddhanta sadhana.
