Question: Having once surrendered completely, is there any possibility of backsliding, or will the strength of the disciple’s aspiration and oneness with the Guru’s consciousness prevent this?

Sri Chinmoy: In one of my previous answers, I have told you what complete surrender means. If surrender has already achieved that kind of perfect perfection, then there can be no possibility of backsliding on the part of the disciple. A disciple who achieves perfect perfection in his or her surrender will undoubtedly be the highest pride of the Guru.
