Master, Sadguru, or Qutub is approached and His grace and guidance are invoked. The Perfect Master's invariable counsel is complete surrender to Him. Those few who do, surrender their all—mind, body, possessions, so that with their complete surrender they also surrender consciously their own "self" to the Perfect Master, yet have their very being left conscious to commit actions activated now only by the dictates of the Master.

 

Such actions, after the surrender of one's "self," are no longer one's own actions. Therefore, these actions are capable of uprooting all other actions which feed and sustain Life. Life then becomes gradually lifeless and eventually succumbs, by the grace of the Perfect Master, to its final death. Life, which once debarred the persevering aspirant from realizing Perpetual Existence, can now no longer work its own deception.

 

I have emphasized in the past, I tell you now, and I shall age after age forever more repeat that you shed your cloak of Life and realize Existence which is eternally yours.

 

To realize this Truth of Unchangeable, Indivisible, All-pervading Existence, the simplest way is to surrender to me completely; so completely that you are not even conscious of your surrender, conscious only to obey me and to act as and when I order you.

 

If you seek to live perpetually, then crave for the death of your "deceptive self" at the hands of "complete surrender" to me. This Yoga is the Essence of all Yogas in one.

  TO HIS FOLLOWERS

 

When some of my devotees, through their zeal and enthusiasm, speak of me in the highest terms, it is natural for us to encourage them. But if, later on, that enthusiasm wanes and they speak of me in the lowest terms, then although we do not encourage them, we should at least not check them, harass them or try to stop them from saying what they feel.

 

It is not what the world thinks of us that matters, but what God knows about us that matters. Unless we are stripped of all egoistic tendencies and desires, and unless our soul attains its original naked state, we cannot embrace God the Beloved, Who is Eternally Naked in His Infinity.
