Questioner: Would Maharaj talk about the grace of the guru?

Maharaj: It is the intensity of the faith you have in the guru’s words that is

most important; once that is there, the grace flows automatically. The faith

in the guru is based on the consciousness within, faith in one’s Self. The

love for the beingness I am trying to direct to a higher level. What is lasting

is this love for the Self, on which temples have been built. This Christ – consciousness is existing; is it faith in a man? As a man, Christ was crucified, but that universal consciousness which was his lives today.
