You are about to give your word and you just have to live that word every day – that word to keep these vows and to give yourself as servant of your spiritual master and to just be a preacher. “That’s what I really desire!” Then the vow will be ever fresh.
So, one has to look after his vows and keep them very fresh and keep them close to the heart. If we do like that then our spiritual master is always with us. He is not far away – actually then the relationship becomes very positive.
Yes, I am of course also a disciple, and I am trying to do the same thing. I’m trying to keep that relationship very fresh.
