The Grace Of A Guru (Teacher) Is Like An Ocean


The grace of a guru (Teacher) is like an ocean.

If one comes with a cup, he will only get a cupful.

It is no use complaining of the niggardiliness of the ocean.

The bigger the vessel, the more one will be able to carry.

It is entirely up to him.

-Ramana Maharishi

Niggardliness means: 1.Grudging and petty in giving or spending.

2. Meanly small; scanty or meager. Eg: left the waiter a niggardly tip.
