Whenever we are ready to obey the Lord, and we approach Him with the attitude of a disciple — with humility, devotion, and shraddha — the God within us will assume the role of Guru, and lead us, holding our hand.

The essence of the scriptures is in its practical aspect. While dealing with others, were we able to maintain our composure? Otherwise, what is the difference between us and a tape recorder, or a book?
