Q&A: Our Spiritual Purpose - with Sri Swami Satchidananda
Recorded on April 27, 2002
In this satsang, Swami Satchidananda answers questions relating to our spiritual purpose in life and the underlying unity among all spiritual paths. He elaborates on basic spiritual principles including: “Truth is one, paths are many;” acceptance vs. expectation; purity of heart; and becoming a witness of the mind.
Sri Gurudev also gives an in-depth teaching about how to handle one’s own hurt feelings and the inability to forgive: “Your getting upset doesn’t bring any benefit to anybody. Sometimes you harbor the hurt feeling; it is a poisonous feeling. You are allowing the poison to go in. It affects your own system. That’s why if anybody does something bad to you, you should have the capacity to return something good to them. That’s what you call culture.”
This DVD captures the spontaneity and energy of a public talk providing a beautiful opportunity to sit with Sri Gurudev and be guided by his vast wisdom.
