"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."

The first emotional enrichment you should have is fondness. Have love for people, including those you disagree with. Again, it is not enough to have love alone. Express it with concern. Love with a proper concern becomes sympathy. Further, in pursuit of love and sympathy, you must be able to sacrifice willingly and lovingly. Others should feel and know that you are fond of them. Only then individual saadhana begets the societal dimension to become collective saadhana as well.
