Everyone should elevate himself. Now, in the matter of elevating yourself, are you dependent on others? Do you require any special favor or blessing from even God? Krishna says no! Ātmanā ātmānaṃ uddhared – You have to elevate yourself only by making use of your own mind and intelligence, inner resources. In the matter of employing this self-elevating effort, you are not depending upon anyone.
This path is an unfailing path. All that you have to do is, any questions you may have, put the questions into yourself, the answer will come. If you want any kind of a redress, put the subject into the mind, and do the saadhana the Guru has asked you to do. You will find by the saadhana, whatever redress you want will be generated. But it may not always be in the manner in which you like or you look for.

According to our scriptures, human life is meant to achieve a fourfold purushartha : dharma, artha, kama and moksha. It is not that man is given the choice to select any one of the four. Say, one man takes to dharma, another takes to artha, a third takes to kama and the fourth becomes a votary of moksha. No, the four purusharthas are not detached from one another. It is the one and the same individual who has to undertake the fourfold pursuit.

This human body has somehow been obtained without one’s own effort, even though it is rare and difficult to get. Having this body – like a well-made boat – with the Guru as boatman, and My grace as the favourable wind, if a man fails to cross over the ocean of worldliness, he is a killer of his own Self.
When the Lord is pleased with the devotional worship done in many hundreds of lives, with great respect according to Vedic prescriptions, He mercifully appears before the devotees in the form of Sree Guru, and instructing them well revealing the supreme Truth, takes them across the miserable worldly ocean.
The Guru-sishya relationship is the supreme relationship in this world. A Sadguru is the one on whom a sishya can depend upon completely and unconditionally. He surrenders himself unreservedly in the Guru’s hands to be moulded by his Guru in any manner so that he becomes fit to receive the supreme knowledge. The Guru too takes complete charge of such an earnest disciple who is filled with a burning desire to receive knowledge regarding the ultimate reality. He imparts to the disciple that supreme knowledge of Brahman attaining which all the knots of his heart are severed and he is liberated.
