Hi Lynn:

Far too often I have personally seen how good and earnest and sincere men
and women have transferred all their judgement and decisions to a Guru, who
very often ended up exploiting the followers. If K's msg helped us to
understand what a Guru is really, then it is going to help us all from being

I recall the in the ML to APS, there was a mention how till the highest
initiations, the chela is left to his own counsel and decision making
because that is the only way you grow up.
