3425. A Spiritual Master is strict

A spiritual Master is strict

With his spiritual children,

Not because he wants them

To be always afraid of him.

No, no, no!

He is strict with them

Because he wants them to conquer

Once and for all

Their inner fear.

This inner fear is the beginning

Of their spiritual death.
