750) Whether I know I am a genuine disciple! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

—————- Therefore this is very essential, that the students should be very disciplined. Disciple means one who follows discipline. This is disciple, sisya. The Sanskrit word is also the same, sisya. I have several times explained. Sisya, it comes from the verb sas, sasana, ruling. So sisya means one who voluntarily accepts the ruling of the spiritual master. He is called sisya. Sisya, sasana, sastra, sastra, sasana — these things are the same, from the same root. So this is the instruction.
chandamsy adhiyita guror ahutas cet suyantritah
upakrame avasane ca caranau sirasa namet
This is essential. To make the human life real civilized, the children should be sent to the gurukula. But there is no gurukula at the present moment. So we are starting. We have got some gurukula in the United States, Texas. We are starting another gurukula in Vrndavana, and we can start another gurukula here in Bombay to train the students. ————-
