Guru—Disciple : 5.


Part-5.

The whole thing was a hoax right from the start.

You are not a proper disciple and the other person is not a qualified Guru.

These two people enter into a funny relationship which is based on falsehood, on untruth.

Then begins the tug-of-war.

I will obey my Guru as long as he tells me what pleases me.

If he says something that doesn’t please me, then I begin to doubt.

Probably he is not the right type of Guru.

Then perhaps you pick up one of Swami Sivananda’s books and quote from somewhere where it says :

"Be careful in your choice of a Guru and accept him only after testing him severely and finding out that he is the proper one to be your Guru."

First he says that you cannot become a Guru without attaining self-realisation,

secondly he says you must obey your Guru implicitly,

and thirdly he says that you must examine your Guru before accepting him.

Sri Swami Venkatesananda
