Questioner: If we have faith
(shraddha) in a guru regardless of what he is like, will
that faith bear fruits?
Your faith will bear fruits only if you do not develop negative
feelings and intent (abhaav) for him, even when he acts
Questioner: So, if we have faith in the guru,
can we excel beyond our guru?
Dadashri: You certainly would, only if you do
not develop negative feelings for him. There is a living God within that guru. It
worked for Bheem even when he made a pot his guru. It is
your faith that works, is it not? A person
who has a habit of faulting others will go down if he does the same
for his guru, when his guru says something wrong. If you
have the energy to take care of your guru, then no matter what
crazy things he does or whether he becomes delirious, if you can
take care of him, it is worth making him a guru. But people do not
put up with the guru until the end. They do not know how to do
that, do they?
Questioner: If we place complete faith even in
an unworthy person, it will bring forth benefits; will it not?
Dadashri: Why not? But you should not change
after establishing it.
What is all this? Shall I tell you the truth? Shall I say it
openly? It is not the guru, but your faith alone, that gives you
the fruit. Whoever the guru may be, it is
your faith that gives you the result. Not even this idol
gives you the results; it is your faith that will bear
fruits-results. The stronger your faith,
the greater the instant benefit.
It is like this: faith on anyone does not remain continuously;
it comes and goes in this world. The
Gnani Purush is the exclusive idol of faith (shraddha
ni murti). Faith comes to everyone upon meeting him. As
soon as you see or hear him, you develop faith in him. The
Gnani Purush is the idol of faith. He liberates you for sure. It is your
faith that gives you the fruit in all cases.
Gnani Purush: One who has realized the
Self and is able to do the same for others; The Enlightened One;
Perfectly enlightened One, who is free from ego and all worldly
attachments and enlightens others
