THE IMPRESSIONS RECEIVED FROM THE SADGURU
But even such a person, who cannot by any stretch of imagination think of freedom from earthly fetters, may find that the sanskaras which he catches from his contact with the Sadguru are potent enough to drop forever a curtain on his old manner of thought and existence, and open for him entirely new vistas of a higher and freer life.
The impressions received from the Sadguru might be equally beneficial to an intellectual and cultured person whose vision is nevertheless circumscribed, whose imagination can at best appreciate the beauty of art and literature and whose altruism cannot go beyond the limits of his neighbourhood or the boundaries of his country. Such a person would, on receiving impressions from a Sadguru, be lifted to still higher modes of life.
The Sadguru can raise the aspirant from the ordinary intellectual level of consciousness to the level of consciousness where there is inspiration and intuition, and then onwards to the level of insight and illumination which culminates in his merging into the Infinite.
