    The spiritual path is very important to understand. Why is it said to have a guru and surrender to a guru? If you don’t surrender, you are only going to hang on to your own mind and material lens. That’s what you have, you can’t get rid of it. It’s not possible. You have to surrender your mind, body, and speech to guru. You have to have this faith that if he is saying something and it doesn’t match my understanding, then I am going to give up my understanding.
