"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."

Effort at Self-realization has no meaning unless the seeker has ample measure of dispassion (vairagya) towards the objects of the world. Dispassion does not imply either hate or intolerance towards anything. It denotes constant awareness that all things of the world are perishable and hence cannot be the lasting source of joy or friendship. Such awareness will strengthen the quest for the Self. In the absence of dispassion the yearning for the Imperishable Self can at best be like a picture drawn on water.
