"So the discretion is that Guru is Parabrahma - any guru, Satguru. But what about the Parabrahma Itself, which is your Guru? I do not say things as hearty as the gurus used to do it. I mean, if you read about them you'll be shocked. But whatever I say, every word, you must note, is for your benevolence and for the benevolence of the whole world. And, by not obeying Me in that, you are not only spoiling your own chances, but the chances of the whole world. So you understand how important it is if you are the disciple, if you are blessed by your Guru. All these things are written about them, but I say not only that you are My disciples, but you have got your realization, you are Sahaja Yogis. You got all the powers. You know each and everything. You are so special people. For such people there should not be any difference of opinion, because you know the same thing all the time, so there cannot be any fight, there cannot be any quarrel, there cannot be any argument. But the discretion should be that our Guru is a Mother. She's very mild. She's very gentle. She's very kind. I know that."
