First deserve, and then demand

Gururaj_priya_103If a guru gives you a practice which is needed by you, specifically tailor-made for you, practice it with sincerity and truthfulness. And if you practice it with sincerity and it does you no good, change the guru!

The teacher shows you the path, but you have to walk it with your own feet. There is no other way. No one else can evolve you—you have to evolve yourself.

One important principle we always forget: first deserve, and then demand.

Charlatans come along and promise all kinds of things. We do not promise anything. Actions speak louder than words, and a person on the spiritual path must be taught to act.

It does not matter if a person is critical of what the teacher says—everyone to his own level of understanding. But one thing is true: once you have embarked on the search for truth, that search does not stop. Once you have started on the spiritual path, you have started . . . and that is what is important.
