Perhaps the aspirant did not, but the Master did. When he returned to his room, he reflected over the ideas thus gathered by him in the class. This gave rise to other sublime thoughts. He incorporated all the ideas in a nice article and presented it to the world through a book or magazine.
Experience was the Master’s greatest Guru. From every experience that he passed through, and saw others pass through, he drew a lesson. For instance, in his youth he had seen a whole bazaar being reduced to ashes because the shops had thatched roofs. He never forgot the lesson. He would much rather let a person live in the open than in a thatched cottage.
