20130423 – Love and intelligence – part 2 (final)


To have Real Understanding, consciousness must remain, and intellect (mind) must go. It does not mean becoming mad like Punjia [an inmate in the Mad Ashram at Rahuri]. What I mean is that intellect should be the means of wholeheartedly achieving ends that are accepted by the heart. And if you obey me with all your heart, intellect will go and consciousness will remain.

A person may be very intelligent, but if he has not the fortune to have the company of a Sadguru, he will not get Self-Realization. On the other hand a person, though dull, who has that rare fortune to have the company of a Perfect Master can have Self-Realization. And I myself will bow down to such a person who is fortunate enough to be very intelligent and, at the same time, who has love for and the company of a Perfect Master.

Even after coming in contact with a Perfect Master, it is very difficult to obey him. Suppose you believe me to be the Perfect One and while obeying me, even if you have a passing thought doubting my perfection, it would not be perfect obedience.
