Resonance of Guru-Disciple Swamiji Mahavatar

Swami Vishwananda Arati to Mahavatar Kriya Babaji
Mahavatar Babaji is Swami Vishwananda's Guru. Babaji communicated that the following excerpt from a story that Swami Vishwananda relates demonstrates the value, the blessing, and the eternal resonance of the heart and soul between the Guru and the disciple. A disciple is one who is loyal and devoted to the Guru, no matter what!

Swami Vishwananda Tells this Story: Once there was a man. He was always searching for his Satguru. So he went everywhere, and he met many masters, but yet his heart was not satisfied. He asked a holy saint once what to do about this. The saint told him, “On that mountain you see ahead, many holy men live there. Take two twigs from the mango tree, and say to each of the holy men, “Tell me dear Sir, to which tree do these twigs belong?" And no matter what tree they say the twigs belong, you say they are from the pipil tree. If there is a Satguru among them, when you say the twigs are from the pipil tree, he will say, “Yes, the twigs may be from the pipil tree.”

The man invited all the holy men from the mountain to his place and prepared a feast for them. The man treated the holy men like beloved honoured guests. The man showed the holy men the twigs of the mango tree and asked each of them, “Dear Sir, tell me to which tree do these twigs belong? Name the tree.” One after another, the holy men all looked at the twigs and said “The twigs are from the mango tree.” As instructed by the saint, the man said each time, “No, the twigs are from a pipil tree! And the holy men, one after another, became angry and said, “No, the twigs are from the mango tree!” And then the man, who was searching for his Satguru, asked the same question of the last holy man who was sitting by himself, quietly eating his food.

Swami Vishwananda tells the end of the story like this: “This last saint, who was a true Satguru, said: Well, it can be possible that the twigs are from a pipil tree.” Very calmly and very serenely, with a smile, the Satguru said this. You see, the quality of calmness is very important. How can a Master guide, if he is not calm? And this is the greatness of a Satguru; no matter what happens, he will always stay calm.”

The story shows the humbleness of
the Satguru whose heart is overflowing with love.
My question to Mahavatar Babaji is:
What are the prerequisites for
enlightenment?
Thank You,Jai Guru Dev,Ramayotee

Ramayotee:

The first requirement for enlightenment is that you are Light.

The second requirement is that you have forgotten you are light. You think enlightenment is over there and you are over here. In truth, enlightenment is here in you!

The third requirement is that you remember you are light, always have been light, and always will be light.

Like the sun that reflects light because it is light...

Lighten up and be light.

With Love and Light,
From the Light Side
Mahavatar Kriya Babaji

Hi Ramayotee,

how are you?

i´m sitting here at home and think about our time which we spent together in Springen and also about our fun during our work (ok., ok., not always :-))).

Perhaps you remember that you said once that you don´t give up until you will have find God.

So, what can we learn ? Never give up and it´s never to late :-)!

Also i would like to say that i miss you all and i hope that we will see us again, asap.

Much, much love and greetings to all, please.

Jai Guru Dev

Dear Babaji, Dear Guriji,

So easy is Yoga :-)and
