It is not that you have become a student and you’ll remain student. No. One
day you shall become also guru and make more students, more students, more.
That is Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s mission, not that perpetually… Yes, one
should remain perpetually a student, but he has to act as guru. That is the
mission of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. It is not that because I am acting as guru,
I am no longer student. No, I am still student. Caitanya Mahaprabhu taught
us this instruction that we shall always remain a foolish student before our
Guru Maharaja. That is the Vedic culture. I may be very big man, but still,
I should remain a foolish student to my guru. That is the qualification.
Guru more murkha dekhi’ karila sasana [Cc. Adi 7.71]. We should be always
prepared to be controlled by the guru. That is very good qualification.
Yasya prasadad bhagavat-prasadah **. Ara na kariha mane asa **. So we should
become always a very obedient student to our guru. That is the
qualification. That is the spiritual qualification.
