"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."

नाहं प्रकाशः सर्वस्य योगमायासमावृतः ।
मूढोऽयं नाभिजानाति लोको मामजमव्ययम् ।। ७.२५ ।।

nāhaṁ prakāśaḥ sarvasya yoga-māyā-samāvṛtaḥ |
mūḍho’yaṁ nābhijānāti loko mām-ajam-avyayam || 7.25 ||

Krishna again impresses upon Arjuna that he speaks not alone as a timely instructor, but also carries an unrelenting identity with the Supreme, reflecting dimensions ascribed generally to the Almighty (7.25). It is this higher consciousness that makes him speak the way he does.
