Guru—Disciple : 6.


I keep these three quotations in three different pockets and pull each one out where it is applicable.

When I look at you as my Guru, I pull out the quotation that says a Guru is necessary.

When I am endeavouring to obey you,

I pull the one out that says.

I must obey the Guru implicitly.

But when the third period comes along and I am given some instructions which I cannot obey,

I pull the third one out and say:

"I am sorry, I didn’t examine my Guru properly. Now that I have examined him thoroughly I dismiss him."

The whole thing is ridiculous.

Sri Swami Venkatesananda
