Purification of heart is the chief among all the means of crossing it and its source lies in devotion to God.
There is no devotion like listening to the stories of the Guru. It inspires love for him, quite effortlessly. The mind becomes cleansed and purified. And from thence, spirituality is born.
He who listens to the stories with reverence and faith, will reach, without delay, the shore beyond.
"He who prostrates in obeisance at the Guru's feet, is ready to give up his life in the Guru's service and puts a question to the Guru very respectfully, to him the Jananis give knowledge with exposition.
