Ordeal of Guru-Bhakti (contd…)
Hemadpant closes the Chapter with a classification of disciples. He says that they are of three kinds :
(1) First or best
(2) Second or average and
(3) Third or ordinary.
The best kind of disciples are those, who guess, what their Gurus want and immediately carry it out and serve them, without waiting for an order from them.
The average disciples are those who carry out the orders of their Masters to a letter, without any delay,
and the third kind of disciples are those, who go on postponing the carrying out of their orders and making mistakes at every step.
The disciples should have firm faith, backed up by intelligence and if they add patience to these, their spiritual goal will not be distant. Control of breath-ingoing and outgoing, or Hath-Yoga or other difficult practices, are not at all necessary. When the disciples get the above-mentioned qualities, they become ready for further instructions and the Masters then appear and lead them on, in their spiritual path to perfection.
In the next Chapter we will deal with Baba’s interesting wit and humour.”
