Be Happy – Get Salvation Through Your Teacher (Guru).

Guru Agya Se jo shish karayee
So  Katni  bhakti  phal  deyee.
[Whatever the disciple does in obedience to the orders of Teacher (Guru),
brings to him the fruit of devotion]

Obeying the orders of the Teacher has great importance. Whosoever carries out the orders of his Teacher begins to get the wealth of pleasures with blessings of God from that very time. If one conforms to whatever is happing through the blessings of his Teacher or the Almighty, this too is the obedience of the Teacher because the way is suggested by the Teacher only. W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965), The Razor's Edge, 1943 mentions , “ You learn more quickly under the guidance of experienced teachers. You waste a lot of time going down blind alleys if you have no one to lead you.”
To Soami main sevak tera
Bhaven sir de sul mera.
(Thou art the Lord and I am Thy servant, If Thou so likest, Thou mayest have my head cut off)

If it is the pleasure of God that the devotee should be executed, he should consider it to be the special Mercy of God and cheerfully prepare to get himself executed and pray, ‘O Supreme Lord! I am Thine, whether You put me in fire or hurl me down the mountain or throw me into the river to be carried away with current, I am cheerfully prepared for every situation. You may do as you wish’. Any devotee who carries out the orders of his Teacher like this is really blessed with His Grace. The Supreme Power grants perfect devotion if a disciple follows the orders of his Teacher strictly in the spirits his Teacher tells him to follow. So long one does not have the perception, he can not follow the orders/teachings. The Teacher knows the condition of every disciple and accordingly explains which way is better for him/her. He never gives orders/teachings at his own but he is directed through the sense of devotion the disciple pays to his teachings. It also depends upon the disciple to decipher what is good or bad and accordingly he puts up his curiosity before his Teacher to guide. He can put up both situations also for seeking enlightenment. Teachers open the door. You need to enter by yourself.

When one gets enlightenment, he/she gets on the right path of the salvation with the confidence that the trouble will now be over. He would have no bigger desire than the salvation. Keeping in view the devotion, the Teacher also keeps himself busy to find out the best way for his disciples. He who has recognised the Teacher and seeks his guidance, can very well understand that his Teacher will tell him the way of salvation. Once this process starts, none can hinder the way.

Juke Hirdaya Guru partiti,
Kala Karam vase nahin jiti
(Kala and Karma cannot dominate over or do any harm to the person who has faith in his Teacher).

Be Happy – Get Salvation Through Your Teacher (Guru).
