The Guru’s body is the Compassion-Net. It entraps the seekers, sleeping or awakened, with all their baffling age-long problems of ignorance. The real work, if there is any, of a Guru is to show the world that his deeds are in perfect harmony with his teachings. O man, do you have no love for the temple inside which you worship the idol; then you must love the body of your rGuru, if you aspire to worship the Omnipotent in him.
