"He (Sriyukteshvar) used to say, "In the Presence of Gurudev (Lahiri Baba), many problems would be resolved in ordinary small talk. Sometimes there was so much chit chat and even jokes and laughter, it seemed like - wait, we didn't really talk about anything important! But, when I would return and think a little bit after having settled down,
I would realize that it was almost as if I had received Divine Knowledge in those conversations." Gurudev Sri Sri Lahiri Mahasaya would at times speak with seriousness, or in an ordinary manner, or sometimes with signs and gestures; this was at times difficult to comprehend for those present. But quieting oneself a little bit and thinking about that which had transpired before, the meaning would clearly reveal itself. Fortunate with the Grace of Guru, the disciple was now living the "Soul incursion" ideal."
