All the people in the world can be put under four categories:
The Guru’s disciples, bhaktas, those who are indifferent to Him and those who are hostile to Him.
All these will be benefited by the existence of the Jnani
Each in his own way and to various degrees.
Sri Raman Maharshi
Question: Acharya Ji, how is one who is indifferent to the Guru benefiting from the Guru’s existence? How does a Guru’s presence help everyone?
Acharya Prashant Ji: So what are the four categories listed?
Disciples, devotees, the indifferent ones, and the hostile ones. And Raman Maharshi says, “All these four categories will be benefited by the existence of the Jnanis, but in different ways and to different degrees.”
