Advantage of Contemplation on the Form of theMaster
There are many advantages of such Contemplation. The inner currents emanating from the Master, as also his good qualities, enter the disciple's mind.
In his Yog Sutra, Patanjali says:
If you contemplate on the form of one who has no attachments, then you attain concentration of mind.
The Master remembers God at all times and has the power to rise at will to the upper regions. By contemplating on such a Form, we also increase our power to remember God and are able to travel upward on our spiritual journey.
All those who have achieved spiritual success, have done so by contemplating on the Form of their Master.
