There is a world within an atom; and the world itself is an atom in something of greater magnitude!
You can be virtuous only if you
(a) see the danger in non-virtue and
(b) you observe the non-virtue without emotional involvement (thus avoiding self-pity and self-justification), and see the utter foolishness of it.
Therefore, one who seeks enlightenment or freedom from limitation must expose himself to these different facets, to the teachings of different Masters, different Gurus, so that there is a comprehensive understanding of this truth.
It is immediately clear that one who thus exposes himself to several masters is freed from one of the greatest scourges we find among ourselves - criticism.
"My guru is superior to yours."
