29.ASHRITA: Vinaya, I am going to tell Guru that you have a dog. I am sure you have not taken his permission.
VINAYA: True, I have not taken Guru's permission, but I am going to tell him today. I had a very vivid dream. Guru asked me to get a dog so I could have real faithfulness in addition to my unquestionable humility.
