Have some satsang news to share? I do:
One question asked by a resident stands out and deserves to be examined. The resident asked, "Should we hug eachother?" Bro. Dharmananda's answer, "No". Brother's answer applied towards not only Hidden Valley residents (monks, monastic hopefuls, retreatants, lay-residents) but to outside men & women devotees. Dharmananda might have been considering that it will inevitably lower energy to the sex center. I personally question the basis for this group guidance and wish that questions of that nature be held in private counsel.
HUGS NOT DRUGS!
