Subject: Satsanga notes 15 July 1975



Summarized from my informal personal notes during a special public "Panel"
Satsanga at Los Angeles, 31 July 1975. Panelists= Bro. Achalananda, Dennis Weaver, Dr. & Mrs. Lipski, Jack & Sylvia Posack.



(Disclaimer: Anything below
that seems unclear is solely due to my note taking. In the actual
satsanga the speakers made their points very clearly. Also, notes
cover only a fragment of entire the satsanga. )



Question: Should we (SRFers) have children ?

Answer:
Yes, provide good karmic homes for bodily temples of future
yogis. Family mirrors Holy Trinity. Father = help. Mother = love.
Child = purifies family love. Parents are responsible to
lead, guide and discipline soul of child.



Q: How to interest children in SRF teachings?

A: Main force is parental example.

Strength of faith in parent.

Wait patiently for 'seeds' to sprout.

Couch truths in metaphysical stories.

Have chapel area in home.

Remember spiritual father (PY) annually on Father's Day.

Let ALL family members share in discussions.



Q:
When to introduce techniques to our children?

A:
Energization at 3 years old & up, at parent's
discretion.

Hong Sau at 10 yrs, with permission from Mother Center.

Om at 13 yrs, with permission from Mother Center.

Kriya at 15 yrs, with permission from Mother Center.



Q: How
to cope with family members who are against SRF?

A:
Be an example, not a missionary.

Solve all your problems through meditation.

Remember that the smooth life isn't necessarily the victorious
life.

If we change ourselves we will change thousands.



Q:
How to keep vegetarian diet amongst those opposed to it?

A:
Follow SIMPLE diet best suited to you & your
needs.



Q: How
can busy family find time for meditation?

A:
Meditation first. Be in business with God.
