Om Amriteswaryai Namah!

UNSTEADINESS

One brahmacharin had a wish to go somewhere to practice meditation
in solitude.

Mother:
========

Mother will not allow you to do that. You want to escape without
confronting and defeating the obstacles rising within you. After two
days you will come back. If you go somewhere, sadhana should be
performed staying there at least for a month, without moving around.
But you won't do that. You would say that staying with the Mother is
the best. Go and meditate after changing your clothes.

The Holy Mother was sitting in the ashram library after lunch.

Brahmacharin Balu:
===================

Can a jyani (Kwower of the Self) bestow Liberation on one by mere
sankalpa?

Mother:
=========

Certainly, but the disciple should have alertness and faith. One who
has faith will not ask any questions of the Guru. He will obey the
Guru's words implicitly. That is service to the Guru. There is no
benefit if one who does service has no 'visala buddhi' (expansive
vision), Obedience and proper discipline are necessary. The Prime
Minister entrusts each section to the other ministers. What if they
walk around to serve the Prime Minister without doing their job? Is
that correct? Will he be happy? The same is the case with the
spiritual Guru. God doesn't need anything, neither service nor
flattery. Devotion, faith and obedience is what is needed.
