The look of another Guru. Sri Guru and His Grace.

A Sanyasi and a Guru once explained this aspect to me like this - in the early stages the disciple is inevitably dependent, can say "totally" on the Guru and his vision. But the actual process is for the student to develop his own vision.

Reading reports from years ago shows constant or frequent dissatisfaction. The question is, of course, what mechanisms have been triggered, if the generals of SIF use manipulative methods and the tasks set go beyond "prasadam, book distribution, sankirtana" and they enter into business and, of course, especially strange - politics. So in this sense, the fruit does not surprise me at all.

A modern psychological perspective that talks about relationships without commitment is also an illusion. People who enter into a relationship, not necessarily a man-woman, or a boss-employee, create a system of obligations and expectations. The mystical process, however, means that theoretically the mechanisms go beyond the limits of the physical world ....
A young devotee meets a woman devotee. They don't spend 10 hours in sankirtana and japa. Generally speaking, the spiritual life is pleasing, but the hormones are raging. This is just the beginning of the spiritual life, let's say. They are, let's say, poor. Parents do not accept joining the sanga. They don't have their own apartment. A lot of work awaits them to earn a flat. Then, on the way, my senses are lost and the 2nd devotee appears. Younger ... Progressive psychologists would say - "You expected too much." Sangha brothers will say "karma, not enough kirtans, poor japa". One of former SIF members would ask "was she pretty?" This is life. True story. Often true. Broken heart.
