Who Is Qualified to Help Others?

Swami Amritageetananda Puri: “A man at a bus stop tried to jump onto a moving bus. A passenger standing on the footboard of the bus tried to pull him onto the bus but was not strong enough, and both fell out onto the road! Similarly, there are many (like them). Those who have learnt the scriptures and have done little tapas (=austerities) try to help others, but unfortunately a time passes, they lose sight of their goal and run after name and fame… Soon, they fall from the path.” (pg. 8, Matruvani, July 2013, Vol. 24, No. 11)
