Just passing by,and heard some conversation betwean cguru(R1)(what a strange name for a Guru :) ),and disciple. But,to be honest,my attention is drown by delicious mango fruits. Salutation to a cguru(R1),and taking one ripe mango i am going my way. I am leaving some fresh flowers for exchange. :)

cguru(R1) noticed someone placing a basket of fresh flowers and leaving ,as he was conversing with the Disciple.He was sitting under the tree after the disciple left for the vedanta class,a villager happened to pass by.He picked a mango as usual and eyed the flowers lying there.
Villager:The Flowers are lovely.They are fresh.
cguru(R1):yes,you like them?
Villager:Yes,swami.They are so fresh.Today,we have a puja in the village temple and I was thinking of buying flowers from the shandy.
cguru(R2):You may take these flowers if you like.
villager:Swami,thanks very much.I know that swami just sits here and does not do puja or anything like that.I will take these flowers for the puja.The devotees in the temple will be happy to see the flowers adorning the Deity.
cgrur(R1):Yes(smiles).
The Villager picks up the basket and after saluting the cguru(R1) departs.
Days pass.The Disciple had not made an appearance.He is totally engrossed in the Vedanta class and his daily routines.He is a lay person and has a family to support.He has to earn his living working in some office.

(read about Vikram and Betal to understand the context)

Betal, the spirit, half-human half-demon in appearance sitting on the back of king Vikram and laughing terribly ... ha ha ha ...

betal: Vikram, answer my question, are you free or not?

Vikram is silent.

betal: Vikram, answer my question, if you do not answer me, I will break your head.

vikram: No

betal: Vikram, justify your answer, else I will break your head.

Vikram is silent.

betal: Vikram, I said justify your answer, else I will break your head now.

vikram: Then listen Betal, with all my freedom I am not free until you are sitting on my shoulders.

betal: ha ha ha ha

One day the disciple came wearing gorgeous dress.
cguru: What occasion?

d: To give darshan.

cguru: To whom?

d: The idea just came today.

cguru: What?

d: That I cannot see God but God can see me.

cguru: So?

d: Wanted to make sure that when God sees me, He sees me in this gorgeous dress and gets attracted to me.

cguru: Good.

d: Today I am going for a job interview.

cguru: ok

d: If they ask me, tell something about yourself, what should I say?

cguru: Say, I am as I am, ever shining, as self as in my job.

d: If they ask me, why are you changing your job, what should I say?

cguru: Say, I am ever unchanged, only the job is changing to better keep pace with my glorious nature.

d: If they ask me, how much do you expect, what should I say?

cguru: Say, I expect nothing, for I do not have any desire. I am ever fulfilled.

d: If I answer as you say, I am done with my job.

cguru: Yes, you will be done with your job.

d: How should I control my mind?

cguru: Before that see whether you can help your fellow brother.

cguru points to a junior disciple (d2).

d: Yes brother, how can I help you?
d2: I am having difficulty controlling my mind. What should I do?
d: What? Has not God given you viveka? Mind said I am out of control and you believed it?

cguru: (to first disciple) You already know the answer. Why are you asking me then?

d: This is my special talent. My parents say that I am good teacher but a bad learner.

cguru: That is the problem.

d: Whaaat?

cguru: No, I mean there lies the solution also.

d: Today I understood.
cguru: What?
d: That all gods are same.

d: Today I understood.
cguru: What?
d: That all gods are silence.

d: Today I understood.
cguru: What?
d: That all gods are shunya.

cguru: I am surprised by the depth of your words. Many can say these but few can actually know these.

d: I have verified it myself.

cguru: How?

d: Following the school examination system, I prepared question papers and kept the answer sheets all night in front of all the major gods - Shiva, Vishnu, Devi, Vinayaka and Muruga. In the morning I checked and found that no one was able to answer any question. I asked the reason and nobody answered. They were all silent. So I gave all of them zero (shunya).

So, from my point of view every god is the same, silence and shunya.

cguru: Strange experiment and interpretation, but nevertheless God has revealed something to you about His Nature, conceptually.
