Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura: "I was not accustomed to worship my spiritual master every day, but by his mercy, I came to know that my only duty was to serve his lotus feet. It is everyone's duty to worship the self-realized spiritual master and follow in his footsteps. We should not follow the blind. The spiritual master is our only well-wisher; our only relative, and our only protector. Only by his mercy are we fortunate enough to know this.
In NBS#71, by describing the forest of the material world, Jada Bharata puts the King on the horse of detachment so that the King will cross over it. It also narrates that there were some waves of dissatisfaction in the mind of Jada Bharata due to his being insulted by King Rahugana, who made him carry his palanquin. However, Jada Bharata neglected this, and his heart again became calm and quiet like an ocean after a storm.
