‘One, the Guru, he/she is away from the influence of maya, ready to help whoever needs help, always fighting for the weak. One finds great pleasure in his/her company. People who are following the path of moksha or liberation from this lok also come in this category. These kinds want nothing for themselves, but are all giving.’
There are three main kinds of people in the world, since the time of Satyug. Their numbers may change, but the categories are three only.
One, the Guru, he/she is away from the influence of maya, ready to help whoever needs help, always fighting for the weak. One finds great pleasure in his/her company. People who are following the path of moksha or liberation from this lok also come in this category. These kinds want nothing for themselves, but are all giving.
Two, the unsure ones, they try to copy spiritual people and cheat many in the process. They say they want moksha but actually they want bhoga. They ape dhyan mudras and have high egos, never accepting their reality, they consider themselves highest and mightiest, and their egos never let them come close to spirituality. They always impose their thoughts and beliefs and themselves don’t believe in them. They are more of ritualistic kinds believing in showing of their vast knowledge and wealth, gyan wise they are zero.
Three, the common people, they are honest to themselves. They might be kings or peasants or rich or poor, inconsequential, they know they want to be here and enjoy the avidya of the world. They neither want anything beyond nor are interested in anything beyond. They are happy here and know their reality.
People like Dashrath and Janak, surprisingly, fall in this category of ordinary people. They wanted kingdoms, children and maya etc. and this is what they asked for also from Gurus like Vashishtha. Gurus and evolved spiritual people are here only for the betterment of society and not their individual physical betterment. Liberation is their only goal and they possess amazing shaktis and powers, yet they never sell nor display them for generating fame or wealth for themselves. These are used only for helping others, their lives are devoted to society and causes of betterment of Creation.
When you are on the spiritual path and want to move towards becoming a Guru, it is very important to be able to be able to differentiate between the categories. It is foolish to expect a category 3 to become category 1 or even 2, or vice versa. The desires of the souls are different, which is what decides the category. A Guru in the making should first learn to not expect all those who come to him/her to become saints. Souls’ desires are different, we are a homogenous society, its unity in diversity. We all move towards our goals depending on the desires of our souls. People who desire moksha would always be a minuscule minority, those desiring wealth and pleasures would always be in a majority. So without judging or attempting to change anyone, a Guru should just give as per the capacity, i.e. kupatra or supatra, depending on the size of the vessel. Give what one desires, not what you think is good, because that might not be their souls’ desire and they might undermine what you have given and move towards hell.
