Gurus and followers make a wonderful couple, yet I am more scared of the follower. His zeal frightens me & reminds me of the neo-converts who do everything in the book or for that matter anything to prove their devotion.

True Gurus do not require certificates from their followers or from anybody else and those who are not are ruined by their followers and whatever little chance the Guru had to progress is destroyed.

Beware of the follower.



Guru and follower both make a couple just as the couple of ocean and drop. By loosing itself the drop becomes the whole-Self ocean. Drop has no capacity to destroy ocean and disciple also has no power to destroy Guru. But those who get destroyed are not gurus.
