PostSubject: guru - shishya relationship (guru-disciple relationship)   Sat Jul 12, 2008 11:24 am

God, who is immanent, in His grace takes pity on the loving devotee and
manifests Himself according to the devotee's development. The devotee
thinks that He is a man and expects a relationship as between two
physical bodies. But the Guru, who is God or the self incarnate, works
from within, helps the man to see the error of his ways and guides him
in the right path until he realizes the self within.

Devotee has
only to act up to the words of the master and work within. The Master
is both 'within' and 'without', so He creates conditions to drive you
inward and at the same time prepares the 'interior' to drag you to the
center. Thus He gives a push from 'without' and exerts a pull from
'within', so that you may be fixed at the center. You think that the
world can be conquered by your own efforts. When you are frustrated
externally and are driven inwards, you feel 'Oh! There is a power
higher than man!' The ego is like a very powerful elephant which cannot
be brought under control by any less powerful than a lion, which, in
this instance, is no other than the Guru, whose very look makes the
elephant like ego tremble and die. You will know in due course that
your glory lies where you cease to exist. In order to gain that state,
you should surrender yourself. Then the Master sees that you are in a
fit state to receive guidance, and He guides you.
