Trees, Ponds, Rainfalls and Saints are qualitatively the same as they exist for the welfare of others. Pond quenches the thirst of others. Tree gives cool shade, fruit and flower.

Family members like parents, sons, wife, brothers and the near and dear ones are usually hindrances when one is attracted to a Sadguru. Our own ego of status and laziness are also impediments that prevent us from meeting a Sadguru.
