Who qualifies to be the best instrument of the Lord? How can we achieve that state? Bhagawan explains with an inspiring example.
Amongst messengers, there are three kinds. The first kind are those who take the orders of the Lord, disobey Him, and take to such actions which go contrary to the wishes of the Lord. The second kind are those who take what the Lord has said literally and follow without either adding or taking away anything. The results of such work is accepted by the Lord. The third kind are those who take the wishes of the Master and perform the task in such a way that the wishes of the Lord are fulfilled completely and at all costs. They take back to the Master the message of victory. Hanuman is an example of the third kind. This was because Hanuman at all times would only think of Rama, and as he knew very well the power of Rama, he always followed His footsteps. Hanuman’s devotion and faith helped him greatly to recognise the wishes of the Master. - Summer Showers in Brindavan, 1977, Ch 10.
