APPROACHING THE GURU : 4.
You should not ignore highly evolved souls like Swami Narayanji and Swami Poornabodhji as some insignificant personalities.
They are the happiest persons.
You should resort to them often and often and learn from them in first-hand detail how Sri Swamiji had trained them.
They are ever ready to serve you all with the nectarine instructions they received directly from Sri Swamiji while he was actively engaged in training the aspirants individually.
You may ask why Swamiji was not giving those instructions in later times.
Those days things were different.
On one side the volume of work that drew his immediate attention had attained a colossal magnitude and on the other side none was willing to sacrifice his individuality to get himself properly established in the spiritual path and enjoy the Supreme Bliss.
If Swamiji asked a new aspirant to observe a fast, at once the other man thought that Swamiji was making him weak by forcing starvation on him.
