    Prasad: Swami! I have a small doubt in this matter, please answer me .

    When you expose the total truth, the beginners will be certainly discouraged.


    Swami: Your assumption is correct and there is no doubt in your doubt.

    But don’t you see another possibility in your proposed point?

    The person standing on the first step may be discouraged

    And may turn back to the ground on seeing the final hundredth step.

    This is one possibility based on which your doubt was shot up.

    But the another possibility is that the person standing on the first step

    May climb with fast speed because he has to reach the hundredth step

    Before the short human life finishes, then this knowledge acts in positive way.

    You are taking only the person in the negative way always.

    Anyway if the person steps back to the ground, getting discouraged,

    He will never climb up and there is no use of knowledge in his case.

    The method of a teacher is always aimed at the positive side

    And the teacher is always hopeful of reaching the highest goal.

    Even if you show tenth step to the beginner and say that the tenth step

    Is the hundredth step, then also the maximum step he can reach is tenth only.

    Now you may say that he has not reached even the tenth step

    Because he has seen the hundredth step and thus even that little progress

    Does not exist in his case and so he could not even reach the tenth step.

    If you say this argument, it is not correct because you have forgotten

    One main point that is the pass mark is only forty and not even thirty-nine.

    What is the use of getting any number of marks below the forty?

    Before the human birth is completed he must climb the hundredth step.

    In the final examination he must get the forty marks to qualify himself.

    In the spiritual effort before the human birth comes to end,

    You may climb the tenth step, but by the time the human birth ends,

    You must reach the ultimate goal, for; the human rebirth is very rare.

    You may get below forty in the unit tests before the final test comes,

    But in the final test you have to get minimum forty marks invariably.

    Therefore the student must know the pass percentage as forty

    Even in the beginning of the year and before writing the unit tests also.

    It is not a discouraging factor for a beginner but a warning given

    To the student in the beginning itself about which he must be careful.

    are these your words or someone else's words?
    if they are someone else's words why don't you just provide a link to them?
    i am more interested in your words than some one else's.
    what do YOU say?
