walk-the path

 

See the Guru beyond the personality. A step which takes you up can bring you down also. A ladder helps you to go up, and the ladder cab bring you down. So, once you have come on the ladder to the roof, then remove the ladder. You get inspired by hearing here and there, you walk on the path and the same hearing here and there can also dampen your spirit.

So, first step is, Shravana, hearing; then, Manana, absorbing it in the mind; the third, Nididyasa, total surrendering and experiencing beyond doubt. Until a sadhak comes to the third stage, one has to be careful. Steps may become slippery with soap and water etc., not the fault of the step but the same step can bring you down.

There are two attitudes, one is making the sadhana, even Guru as a step. And the other is seeing the Guru as the ultimate blossoming or ultimate to reach. You make Guru as a step, you get into the complications of raga, dwesha craving, aversion; all these will come. But if you see the Guru as the attainable, attaining, you are saved from all this. There is an old proverb – don’t see the Guru as manush buddhi. Don’t see him, as a personality for there is no personality. See beyond the personality. Respect and love everybody but stick to one path, one goal.

 ~Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
