Just as it is necessary for the spiritual aspirant to keep alive his thirst for knowing the ultimate purpose of life, it is equally important for him to receive instruction from a preceptor who is knowledgeable, clear in his ideas and is able to explain the esoteric and abstract ideas in tangible terms. Therefore the intelligent should grasp the essence, the real meaning, just as a swan is able to separate milk from a mixture of milk and water.

The different forms, names, colours and tendencies that characterize the various aspects of creation do not confuse him .He is neither elated nor sad and is nor attracted by the external world. There is neither doubt nor imperfection, no fear of temptation and only compassion towards all created beings.

In recent times we have learnt to our astonishment how some people have attained “liberation “while still shut up in the gulags of Siberia. They found that elusive thing, innerfreedom, when they renounced bitterness and hatred, humanly justified though they were.
