Mind’s false ego – Part 5 (Final)


Tukaram was a Perfect Master. In one of his abhangs [verses of song] he has said:

“The Master, by his grace,
can make the disciple like himself in no time.”

Here, someone may ask, “Why is there this long period of tests and trials? Why the delay in bestowing grace?” On the part of the Master, there is actually no delay. His is the state beyond time. In relation to the creation, only the present moment exists for him. To the illusion-bound beings, Tukaram has also said the following:

“Unless and until the opportune moment arrives,
undue haste is of no avail!”

So ages and ages have to roll on for the arrival of that opportune moment when, by the Master’s grace, one is established in Reality as the Reality of God.
