Ghadhada First Section - Vachanamrut 56

Shreejimaharaj explains four types of disciples. All four types have equal determination towards God but knowledgeable is more superior as he behaves as Brahm-Swaroop, no other desires exist in him apart from God. The others have determination towards God but they behave as if their body is their soul, therefore they do have other desires too than God. One needs to become humble disciples such that one does not get arrogance about the spiritual knowledge, asceticism, and devotion. God will only be pleased if disciples do not have such arrogance and will reside within their heart.
