How should one respect the climax devotee without polluting one's love towards the Incarnation of God?

[Ms. Bhanu Samykya asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, How should an ordinary devotee respect the climax and highest devotees without polluting one's love towards the Contemporary Human Incarnation of God? because they being learned in knowledge and devotion look very similar to the Human Incarnation of God. -At Your Divine Lotus Feet, Bhanu Samykya.]

Swami replied:- There is a specific procedure when the human devotee becomes the human incarnation. God present in the first energetic form will appear and will merge with the human devotee before the eyes. Before doing this merge, God will inform the devotee about the program to be done in the world. Unless this practical visible permission is given by God, the devotee shall not disclose about his/her divinity as human incarnation. If this procedure happens, God has given you the permission to become human incarnation and to take up the divine program of preaching the spiritual knowledge. Sadguru is the contemporary human incarnation, who is authorized by God to preach spiritual knowledge to the world. When Swami Dayaananda was preaching a new interpretation of the Veda, Shri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa asked Him whether He got permission from God to preach such a new interpretation. Of course, the disciples of the Sadguru must serve God by explaining the concepts of the Sadguru in an elaborated way without adding their own poetry! The disciple must run on the fixed framework of the concepts preached by the Sadguru like a train running on the fixed railway track. The devotee shall not run like the bus on the road deviating slightly this side or that side giving new interpretations for the concepts of the Sadguru. The train can run with more speed on the fixed railway track, but, should not deviate even a little from the concepts of the Sadguru.

Every devotee must respect the co-devotee with true love. There is no question of junior and senior in the circle of devotees. If the fixed deposits of the previous births are considered, the first may become last and last may become first. Ragging of juniors by seniors shall not be done as in colleges! All the devotees must feel as equal among themselves. If the feeling of greatness comes in the mind of a devotee, such devotee is infected by the virus of ego based jealousy. God alone is great, greater and greatest. If ego-based jealousy comes even in devotees, certainly ego-based jealousy will come also on the Sadguru or the contemporary human incarnation. All the devoted souls are zeros and only God is the hero like a numerical standing before zeros giving value to them. Without God, all souls are equal like zeros.
