It is not enough if you are born a human being with all faculties working well – physical, mental and emotional. You must bring it to perfection using the discriminating intellect, just as a sculptor does, after the stone is brought to a crude shape. Everyone of you must be aware of your kinship with God, the Divinity latent in you and your immense potentiality. You can know this through the exercise of your discrimination and dispassion (vivekaand vairagya). Only a human being among all animal creation is capable of this. The royal road to this awareness is shown by the Guru; not every one of the several lakh ‘gurus’ claiming their status are entitled to it. For, the word Gu-ru means, the one who has no darkness in him! When you are earnest, the Lord Himself will guide you. Do not despair; march bravely on. Try to fill every moment with thoughts of God, in some form or the other.
