Jayapataka Swami: What the guru is asking for, one should give that. If the guru wants water and he gives milk, that is not fulfilling his desire. So if you are doing a service which the guru has told you to, then there is no problem. If you have a doubt, if the guru is in this world, you can ask him. If your guru is not then, you can see whether you are following his instruction, or talk to some senior devotee, and see if what you are doing is alright.
