What does a Spiritual Master provide ?

Kripalu ji Maharaj says that The Spiritual Master provides theoretical knowledge; he helps us with devotional practice, removes the obstacles that appear during our , and internally elevates our good sanskars and suppresses our bad sanskars. He also Graces us with Divine love after our hearts are completely purified. Our Spiritual Master does all the hard work for us. God, on the other hand, is a friend to only the pure souls. God says, “I will be yours when you completely surrender to Me.”.

A devotee might worry, “How could I become pure? My heart and mind are filled with the accumulated dirt of uncountable lifetimes.” The Guru is responsible for making a soul pure. Just as a mother cleans her baby, the Guru purifies a devotee in the same manner. When a devotee becomes completely purified, God says, “Come to Me.”

For example, in a traditional Indian family, a father raises, teaches, and gives all the good virtues to his daughter. When she is 18-20 years old, a boy comes and interviews her. He marries her and takes her with him. God is the same way.

Devotees say, “Our Spiritual Master has done all this work for us. Therefore if God and Guru are standing before me, I will bow down to my Guru first. Glory to my Guru!” Our problem is that since eternity either we did not find a Saint or did not surrender to him. Due to this, we have not attained our main goal of receiving Divine love and eternal service toRadha-Krishn.

We have met uncountable Saints since eternity still we are rotating in the cycle of birth and death. God is not senior to the souls. Since God has existed we have existed. Since when has God existed? God existed before time. God is eternal, and so is the soul.

“Shri Krishna said: Just fix your mind upon Me and engage all your intelligence in Me. Thus you will live in Me always, without a doubt.”

“Realizing the Grace of God and Guru, be grateful to them all the time and try to shed tears”

“We never know when our life (body) is coming to an end. Hence, keep thinking about God all the time. Never ever forget Him”

” Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open ? “

“Every auspicious action should be performed with humility and while constantly remembering that God alone is our all‐in‐all.”

“Unless Shri Krishna Himself comes and wipes your tears with His own Pitambar, consider your ‘Sadhna’ as hypocritical”

“This world is a poisonous tree bearing poisonous fruits and the Guru is a never ending source of nectar”

“ Spiritual practice is possible only under the guidance of a True Saint or Master ”

“The way to achieve fearlessness is to become detached. That is also the science of work. Do your duty, but be detached from the results”

“Always Retain The Thought Of Hari-Guru In Your Mind And Heart”
