Is a Guru necessary? – Blessed Gyan 04

|| Aum Sai Ram || Aum Sai Para Brahmanaa Namah ||

“On the first day of my arrival in Shirdi, there was a discussion between me and Balasaheb Bhate regarding the necessity of a Guru. I contended, “Why should we lose our freedom and submit to others? When we have to do our duty, why a Guru is necessary? One must try his best and save himself. What can the Guru do to a man, who does nothing but sleeps indolently?”

Thus I pleaded freewill, while Mr. Bhate took up the other side, viz., Destiny, and said, “Whatever is bound to happen must happen; even great men have failed, man proposes one way, but God disposes the other (contrary) way. Brush aside your cleverness, pride or egoism won’t help you.”

We had to stop the discussion ultimately as we were exhausted. The net result of this was that I lost my peace of mind and found that unless there is strong body-consciousness and egoism, there would be no discussion, in other words, it is egoism which breeds discussion.”
