Internal Indicators in Spirituality

234Question: When a student unquestioningly follows the instructions of the teacher, is it not idolatry?

Answer: No. He worships the knowledge and insights of his teacher, not the person himself.

Comment: In this case, anyone can say, “I bow not before a person, but before his ideas, before his qualities.”

My Answer: In principle, each person can determine what he worships and whether he is an idolater. How do you know what and how, and toward what he leads himself. There are no external indicators in spiritual things, only internal ones.
