After you chant a number of times, just by chanting you feel the very deep connection. But just because one feels the connection, that doesn’t mean that one gets an idea to do something that one’s going to… one would still want to confirm that with the spiritual master, and after confirming and confirming and after certain kind of maturity then one’s connection would be recognized by the spiritual master to be so… so in tune that the spiritual master would authorize that person to become a spiritual master. He would authorize that person to confirm other people’s inspirations…
