Saint Surveying Past Lives or Worldly Life in General

A saint in a remote mountain setting, having realized the Self and attained Moksha, ponders all the many lives it took to get to this state. Or–saint from his detached perspective observes those immersed in the world.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
A satguru is needed because the mind is so cunning and the ego is a self-perpetuating mechanism. It is he who inspires, assists, guides and impels the shishya toward the Self of himself.
