You would be familiar with the word satsang. 'Sat' means "Saint" or "Divine personality" and 'sang' means "to associate". If sat, the Saint, is genuine and our sang, association with him, is also genuine, then we will attain our ultimate goal of God-realization and Divine Bliss. The Vedas state:
tadvigyānārthaṁ sa gurumevābhigachchhet
samitpāṇiḥ śhrotriyaṁ brahmaniṣhṭham (Mundakopanishad)

A true Saint is one who has complete knowledge of the scriptures,and also practical realization of God. He should be able to impart to us the theoretical knowledge of the Vedas. Furthermore, he should have attained Divine vision of God. He must possess the treasure of Divine Love Bliss. If someone has a cheque book but nothing in the bank, what can the cheque book achieve? If one merely talks about God, without having surrendered to Him and having attained Divine Love, then that talk will merely increase ones pride.
