It all depends on yourself, what is your own background? What is your
belief? Generally, when a newcomer arrives, the tendency is to immediately
stuff them with Theosophy, unto spiritual indigestion. However, the better
approach it would seem, would be to find out more about the newcomer's own
background, and then ask they ask questions, attempt good answers.
Ususally, the idea is that one prays to one's conception of God. Most
religions require a belief in God. The Hindus have altars to many gods, as
their relgion is a pantheistic one. The Buddhists have yet another idea -
rather difficult to grasp.
Where is one's God located? Within one's heart? In the sky? On another
No doubt prayer is effective. Many studies have shown that; in the Key to
Theosophy, by Blavatsky, she, also, goes into prayer's effectiveness.
Does one pray for one's own benefit? For the benefit of others?
Blavatsky, in the Key to Theosophy, says that prayer must be followed by
actions in order to make it effective.
Just some thoughts. Let me know what you think.
