Achieving a New Identity

Is it possible to be successful in the world while maintaining your philosophical perspective? Gurudeva says, Yes, of course, that once you understand and accept yourself as a soul, rather than a body, mind or set of emotions, then you are able to work harmoniously with everyone without effort, and success comes automatically.

A satguru is needed because the mind is so cunning and the ego is a self-perpetuating mechanism. It is he who inspires, assists, guides and impels the shishya toward the Self of himself.
