Suppose, I stand in front of the World Space studios and somebody comes to me and asks, “How do I go to Lavelle Road?” Well, if I am familiar with Bengaluru and if I know the way to reach Lavelle Road, I would say, “Well Sir, go straight and turn right and keep going down and then take a right turn and you are on Lavelle Road in front of the famous United Breweries.”
Okay, so if you really want to go there, what would you do? Drive down in your car or on your motorbike or on your cycle or walk there until you reach the place, right? I may walk with you or I may just say, “please go”. You may go and find out, but you must walk. I can’t walk for you, right? You must do it yourself, go the way.
Instead of that, if you stop right there instead of moving towards Lavelle Road, and you take out a garland from your bag, hang it around my neck, and then you light a lamp and do an aarti and close your eyes and say, “Oh Sir, you are the greatest teacher on earth; I worship you, I bow down to you, or something similar,” will you reach Lavelle road? No Sir. No madam. You won’t. You will be stuck there in front of Cubbon Park and when you open your eyes, I would have gone, right?
