Unedited Transcript:

A cyberspace devotee in White Plains, New York wonders, "What is the greatest thing a sishya, or devotee of a guru, can do for the guru?"

At this day and age, in our technological age, the best in working with the guru is intelligent cooperation. There are many, many things to do that we could not do even 10, 20 years ago.

Intelligent cooperation, responsiveness to the guru, and the sishya all working together in harmony. Settling their differences before bedtime, so that they don't pile up and become a mountain of problems to be solved, deterring each one involved from his particular path.

So, intelligent cooperation is the best way to serve your guru.

Compassion is the outgrowth of love. Love is the outgrowth of understanding. Understanding is the outgrowth of reason.
