Why Guru is necessary, what is his importance in the life of the disciple? How Guru Seva performed by disciple Dipak of his Guru Veddharma? Answers for all above are also described in this second adhyay. Dipak was disciple of Guru Ved-dharm. Ved-dharm told his entire disciple that now there is time for him to clear of all his sins. By clearing all the sins he can attain moksha. Though he himself was able to clear all his sins as a fruit of his tapas and sadhana, it was not a way to attain moksha. Even he could get blessings by the God and clear his sins, it was also not give him moksha. Hence there was not a way but to suffer physically for his sins and then get moksha. He asked his disciples if anybody is ready to take him to holy Kashi (name of the city on the bank of Holy Ganga River) and help him in his bad physical condition while suffering for his sins. Dipak assured him and followed him to Kashi where he served his Guru Ved-dharm. Kashi is a city where anybody’s all sins are cleared and the person gets moksha. It is a very special importance of Kashi. God Shiva and God Vishnu were very much pleased by devotion of Dipak towards his Guru and ready to bless him. But Dipak told God Shiva that for accepting his (God Siva’s) blessing he has to take permission of his Guru Ved-dharm. Guru Ved-dharm did gave him permission to accept the blessing and clear of his (Ved-dharm’s) sins.
When God Vishnu asked Dipak to accept his blessing then Dipak asked for making his devotion stronger and stronger towards his Guru. After hearing all this from Dipak, his Guru was very much pleased.
Ved-dharm was very much purified by his tapas and sadhana. There were no sins committed by him for which he had to suffer. It was an examination of disciple taken by Guru. Dipak passed in the test by his devoted service towards his Guru Ved-dharm.
