– I want to tell you first that the Sadguru is also the manifestation of the strength of great God, which is always beside a man and always helps mankind in that or other image.
God created the Universe and through the Sadguru’s strength He gives Knowledge to people. A man achieves material and spiritual perfection with the help of this Knowledge. God created trees, but the strength of the Guru gave a man Knowledge that he can build houses, make furniture and many other things from trees. God created many minerals inside the earth, but it was the strength of the Sadguru, that gave the knowledge about how to transform them into useful energy and to apply to different spheres of human life. In early times a man went on foot, but when he saw animals, he understood he could ride them; later he invented trains and aircraft – the strength of the Guru gave this knowledge.
Let us have a look at our life.
Being born we can neither eat, nor bathe or take care of ourselves independently. Our mother does everything for us. This is the strength of the Guru that helps us from the moment of birth in mother’s image. Mother teachers us everything – to walk, to eat, to put our clothes on; and she also gives us the first lesson of belief – that she and dad are our parents. Mother rears and teaches us good traits; lovingly and sometimes strictly she explains to us how to live correctly.
Having grown up we go to school; school teachers appear in our life. They teach us different subjects, give us knowledge. Then we enter some higher educational institution and new tutors proceed teaching us further. They give more profound knowledge on subjects that help us to find worthy job in future.
The role of a spiritual Master in life is very important: he teaches us how to become a Man, gives us spiritual knowledge with the help of which we advance the way of a spiritual perfection; he teaches us love, kindness and good sanskaras (traits). There come the periods in our life when we do not know what to do; we cannot make correct decision. At this time a wise suggestion of the true spiritual Master may be useful. And the most important that every man needs and without which life is impossible is the true love. And such unselfish true love may be given only by the true Man.
When a man lives a correct mode of life, it is easier for him to move to God. Eventually, the main goal of our life is to cognize ourselves. When a man cognizes himself, he then cognizes God. And the one who cognized God can in the true sense love another man. I think the Sadguru is necessary in every man’s life, but in order to find the true Sadguru there must be great mercy of God.
