Mind in Suri Nagamma's Letters - 3
« on: July 15, 2009, 11:21:20 AM »
Suri Nagamma writes in her entry dated 24th October 1947, in

Sometimes the monkey-warriors knock the fruits out of the hands
of the newcomers, while on their way to Bhagavan, and at times
even snatch away the fruit which people keep by their side after
having had it given back to them as Prasadam, by Bhagavan's
attendants.  Noticing these things, Bhagavan would say:

"They take their share of the fruit, why be angry with them?  There
is the concentrated look, the 'lakshya drishti'.  Sometimes they find
out where the fruit is kept and in the twinkling of an eye, all of them come and take away their share.  Their attention is always on the fruit.  That is why, in Vedantic parlance, the monkey's look is given
as an illustration of the concentrated look, lakshya drishti.  The moment Guru makes a sign with his eye, the disciple should understand.  Otherwise the disciple cannot achieve his goal."
