Then if we follow his instruction, he… we may get some idea that “God wants me to do this. Krishna wants me to do this.” and with our spiritual master we will confirm that. “Yes this is an inspired idea.” Or, “No. This is an idea which is not going to be beneficial for you.” And in this way with the help of the spiritual master one is able to achieve complete perfection.
