When the God we crave for-the accomplished sage-abides
the Soul and begins to instruct him,
only then does real worship begin.
Here God and accomplished sage- teacher,
as prompters, are synonymous.
If God descends into heart at the level at which we stand,
begins to check and guide,
support in case the worshiper stumbles-only then
the mind fully restrained.
Unless God stands by as a charioteer,
close to the Soul as a prompter,
there cannot be an adequate initiation to his path.
Before this the adorer is on trial;
he has not yet achieved
