"Unflinching devotion to the Teacher is paramount in the life of a true seeker. To begin with, an external God can be the object of faith. But once the devotee grows to be a seeker, only a Wise Teacher can fulfil his quest.  It is then for the seeker to get purified and enlightened by the words of wisdom from his Guru.  Their bond and attunement put the Teacher on the pedestal of God.  Such an impeccable Guru-sishya bond alone bestows wisdom, strength and fulfillment to the seeker."

What is the Self?  It is that inner thing which senses the senses in your body, which in turn sense the objects around.  It is that which knows the mind, knows the intellect, knows in short everything in you –even YOU yourself.  Will you not try and know this Self, the ‘I’ in you?  In knowing it, my dear soul, is hidden all the peace and joy that you want.
