He stirred his disciples' hearts more by
a subtle influence than by actions or words.

The guru no doubt does everything
for the disciple; but at the end he
makes the disciple work a little himself.

man cannot untie the knots however he may try.
All the knots of ignorance come undone in the
twinkling of an eye, through the guru's grace.

it is necessary to seek the company of holy men,
practise prayer, and listen to the instruction of the guru.
These purify the mind.

service to the guru is the only religion*


*Among the attendants Śashi was the embodiment of service. He did not practise meditation, japa, or any of the other disciplines followed by his brother devotees. He was convinced that service to the guru was the only religion for him. He forgot food and rest and was ever ready at the Master's bedside.

The help of a qualified guru is absolutely necessary.
An unwary devotee may lose his foothold and fall into a pit of depravity.

The Maharshi with an ineffable smile which lit up His Holy Face and which was all-pervasive, shining upon the coterie around him, replied in tones of certainty and with the ring of truth;
“Divine Grace is essential  for Realisation. It leads one to God-realisation. But such Grace is vouchsafed only to him who is a true devotee or a yogin, who has striven hard and ceaselessly on the path towards freedom.”

(Talks)

1078


   God is untouched by activities, which take place in His presence; compare the sun and the world activities. There is no meaning in attributing responsibility and motive to the One before it becomes many. But God’s will for the prescribed course of events is a good solution of the free-will problem (vexata quaestio). If the mind is restless on account of a sense of the imperfect and unsatisfactory character of what befalls us or what is committed or omitted by us, then it is wise to drop the sense of responsibility and free-will by regarding ourselves as the ordained instruments of the All-wise and All-powerful, to do and suffer as He pleases. He carries all burdens and gives us peace.

Physically the digestive and other organs are kept free from
irritation. Therefore food is regulated both in quantity and quality.
Non-irritants are eaten, avoiding chillies, excess of salt, onions,
wine, opium, etc. Avoid constipation, drowsiness and excitement,
and all foods which induce them.

D.: How do all thoughts cease when the mind is in the Heart?

M.: By force of will, with strong faith in the truth of the Master’s
teaching to that effect.
