“There are three tests that we can put something into – sadhu, sastra and guru. This is the check and balance system. We can learn from examples of the great souls who lived in the past, that is sadhu praman. Then we have the sastras – the books are the basis; everything is based on the Vedas. Whatever the Vedas say is the most important.”
