APPROACHING THE GURU : 4.
I shall now recollect certain instances which shall be of help to you all.
Once Swamiji introduced saltless diet on Saturdays.
Some inmate-disciples did not like this. And they used to keep ready with them, even on the previous day, small packets of powdered salt.
Swamiji on learning about this incident abandoned giving this personal training to the inmates, save the instructions:
"I have given you everything. I have shown you the path. If you have good aspirations, you will definitely adopt the correct measures; otherwise, if you are not sincere, you may hardly evolve. I shall no more insist and force upon you all any instruction, however good it may be."
Such is the method of Swamiji Maharaj.
When you do not admit yourself humbly to get trained by Swamiji why should he forcibly train you? If he does so, you will begin to abuse him.
