It may be that a bona fide guru, he mercifully teaches all his instructions to all his disciples—the same thing. But we know that all the disciples cannot take it in the same—as he has told. They will take and realize according to their quality and advancement in bhakti. Some can take it artificially, some may take it sincerely, following in all ways externally and internally.
So, only false ego will not do: “I am disciple.” They should know the heart of their Gurudeva, what he wanted. What was the mood of his Gurudeva? Who was his Gurudeva? Otherwise he will be cheated, he must be cheated.
