Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
As per Vedanta scriptures, all thoughts that arise in our mind are preceded by the 'Aham spuranam' ('I'). However, the attitude of a Bhata differs. Even if he gets a single good thought or recites the Divine Names of God once, the first thought that comes to him is, 'this happened because of the boundless grace of my Guru'!
Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
When a disciple leads his life with the clear understanding that it is the Guru who is running his life - adverse or otherwise, completely emptying the mind of personal likes and dislikes, seeing everything as Guru's leela, attains realization
To collect people living around one's home and help them chant the Lord's Name is verily service to the Guru. Or to follow the special instruction given to him/her by the Guru is verily 'service' to the Guru.
