All 'Revelations' are not for me other than my 'Own!'

A group of ardent Aspirants once visited a Monastery to have Blessings of the Great Saint and follow the discipline what the Master would tell them.... The Master revealed certain Truths and said, “From now onwards, go and live your life on these lines of discipline told to you!”  All of them very much inspired by what the Master had said, returned homes with a firm decision in their minds to lead further life only with that discipline....

Time went on…. Strangely in some time to the dismay of every one, all of them had fallen off from that very Path of Truth…. But a few of them alone returned to the Ashram and told the Great Saint, “Reverend Sir! We had fallen off from the Path you asked us to follow.... We were unable to have restraint here!”

The Master simply revealed a few more Secrets of Truthful Living and asked them to follow that discipline too, in addition…. Further days passed and finally very few returned to the Master and said that they could not at all stick to the Path told by Him....

The Great Man revealed more of Truth to them and said, “You may again deviate from all this not once but a number of times in your coming up life…. But as soon as you realize the fall, simply get up and continue to stick to the Path but never leave it….” The Aspirants took the Blessings of the Master and left….

A Devotee of the Ashram seeing all this asked the Master a doubt in that context....

The Great Saint smiled and said, “Dear! All are not truly evolved for all the disciplines of Truth..... The Aspirants have to be repeatedly tested by his Master in practical living and then only to be confirmed that a particular discipline of Truthful Living works in them.... Here finally, t
he Life Events coming up alone will trigger the Right discipline in the Aspirants through these extra Revelations at the back! 

Leaving all this,  straight away expecting the Aspirants to live their lives on lines of the Original Truth 'As Is' is a futile attempt because the individuals' Ignorance will never allow that….Thus to say, the Original Truth forever remains as a Secret only with the Men of Higher Understanding and they alone know that freely speaking on that is not a safe method in the Societies around unless the above said Tests are done repeatedly.... This Point is very much reiterated in Srimad Bhagavad Gita thru' the Sacred Message..... 

Shreyan swadharmo vigunah paradharmaat swanusshthitaat
Swadharme nidhanam shreyah paradharmo bhayaavahah.. 

Meaning.... Ever safe is one’s own duty than the duty of another even well discharged…. Better is even death in one’s duty than the duty of another full of fear!"
