RATHER REQUEST HIS CURSE
"A Perfect Master works in the spiritual domain, while the mahatmas (those on the path) can be said to bless, for it is their spoken word that brings about the desired result. When approaching a Perfect Master with the object of deriving material benefit, one should rather request his curse, because such a one's blessing, if at all he gives it in a particular case, is likely to uproot the receiver from his worldly surroundings with a view to making him like the master."
